Laura Hancox

BA Hons (Oxon), MSc, MBPsS

Research Assistant

I am a research assistant in the O-CAP team, working mainly on Managing Adolescent Psychosis: A Feasibility Study (MAPS).

MAPS is a randomised controlled trial, funded by the HTA, to establish the effectiveness of antipsychotic medication vs. psychological intervention vs. a combination of both, in adolescents with first episode psychosis. This study is being conducted as a result of a direct research recommendation in the NICE guideline CG155.

Previously, I worked as an Assistant Psychologist at East Lancashire Memory Assessment Service within Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust. I have also worked as an Assistant Psychologist/ Research Assistant at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust. In the Research Assistant portion of my time, I was the sole researcher on a study to establish the cultural applicability and sensitivity of a new patient reported outcome measure (ReQoL), while it was still in development.

I completed my BA in Human Sciences at the University of Oxford (New College), and my MSc Psychological Studies at the University of Glasgow.
