Cath Kaylor-Hughes

 

Cath Kaylor-Hughes joined the university in 2020 as a Research Fellow in the Department of General Practice, within the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. Cath is the lead researcher on the WiserAD trial [A randomised trial of a Structured Online intervention to Promote and Support Antidepressant De-prescribing in primary care] which started in 2019 and will run for 5 years, she is also an investigator on the CovidCare trial which began recruiting in July 2020.

Also an Honorary Assistant Professor of the Medical School, University of Nottingham, UK, Cath studied Neuroscience at Degree and DPhil level at the University of Sussex before starting her first post-doc at the University of Sheffield, using Neuroimaging to explore the biology of avolition in Schizophrenia as well as executive function in health and disease. After seven years at Sheffield she took a post at the University of Nottingham working on many large RCTs in mental health through two of the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) rounds, including a study which led to a successfully implemented model of collaborative care for people with moderate to severe unipolar depression. Other studies include: REBOOT - a fully automated online study of peer support versus online information for people with mild-moderate depression and anxiety; AQUA 2 - exploring the use of a computerised test for attention and activity to assist in decision making and time to diagnosis in ADHD; The Urgent Care Study - Using a web based teleconference tool to help urgent care users cope with distress about physical complaints; eDASH – A feasibility study to test the effectiveness of a web based intervention for people who have recently self-harmed. More recently Cath was part of the neuroimaging team in a large NIHR funded study testing the effectiveness of targeted TMS in people with moderate to severe depression. An associate Fellow of the higher education Academy Cath has taught modules for the Neuroscience masters course at Nottingham as well as neuropsychiatry and neuroimaging. For several years, she has facilitated the communication skills workshops for medical students and has been a mentor for junior staff through the medical school mentoring scheme. She has supervised Masters Research and Co-supervised several BMedSci studies; she is currently supervising a doctoral candidate whose work is closely linked with the STOPS trial. She is a full member of the British Neuroscience Association and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and a reviewer for national and international peer reviewed grants and journals including The Wellcome Trust, Brain, Journal of Medical Internet Research and Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
