KTF Researcher

£32,584 - £32,584

Job Description

Job Description:

We are seeking a Research Associate to assist on a mixed methods projects looking into antenatal alcohol use.

The core aim of the project is to identify women at risk of continued alcohol use during pregnancy and conduct public and patient (PPIE) and stakeholder consultations, to inform the development of tailored support pathways using Tommy’s pregnancy support app, addressing calls from the Women’s Health Strategy to improve app-based interventions. We’ll embed the voices of service users and health care practitioners (HCPs) within the research through sandpit events. The Tommy’s pregnancy support app is composed of a self-selecting sample of pregnant women who use the app for support and guidance throughout pregnancy.

The project will utilise data from Tommy’s pregnancy support app for women during pregnancy (approximately 88,000 women per year) run by the Charity Tommy’s. We are seeking to examine the prevalence of alcohol use during pregnancy and potential risk factors (e.g. mental health) of alcohol use.

The main aims for the post holder are as follows:


  • To carry out the data reduction and analysis of the data from Tommy’s pregnancy support app.

  • To lead on the PPIE events, four of which will be held remotely and one in person at King’s College London.


Findings will inform a grant bid to develop tailored support for women at risk who are less likely to access antenatal care early, but may use the Tommy’s app. Using data generated as a result of this seed funding and engagement work to test how we can best determine said risks and develop targeted support.
