The study will also investigate approaches through which quality of care and neonatal outcomes could be improved through strategies that formally engage parents and informal caregivers in caring for sick newborns. Dorothy will undertake a DPhil at the Open University, supervised by Dr Caroline Jones and Professor Mike English.
