Background and Research Interests

After studing politics at Durham and Uppsala and working in a number of jobs - from a receptionist for a NGO in Westminster to cattle mustering in rural New South Wales - I completed an MA in Methods of Social Research at the University of Kent in 2005. I was fortunate enough to be supervised by Andy Alaszewski for my MA thesis (constructions of risk and mental health policy) and my PhD - The Impact of Clinical Governance and the Audit Culture on Patient Trust: the opportunity cost of instrumental rationality.

In 2008, as I was finishing of my PhD, I began working with Mike Calnan, pursuing further research into issues around trust in healthcare, funded by the Medical Research Council. Alongside a part-time lectureship I then did some research into trust issues relating to psychosis services (also in cooperation with Mike) with ESRC funding. I moved to the UvA in November 2010.

I have a number of research interests in and around medical sociology and health policy - primarily risk, uncertainty and trust. My doctoral research led into further investigation into the ways in which healthcare professionals act towards/within the 'audit society' and reasons for compliance with, or subversion of, the system. The application of social theory has proved a valuable tool in analysing these phenomena - especially that of Habermas, Luhmann and Schutz.

I am also interested in mental health, particularly the construction of risk around mental illness and its impact on policy and professionals, but also in the perceptions held by those experiencing mental illness of healthcare institutions and the impact of this on trust and care outcomes.

On a more applied level - I have worked on a number of projects funded by organisations such as the Royal College of Physicians, the European Commission and the UK Department of Work and Pensions looking at various aspects of client-experiences and the implications of these for policy.

The Practice and Experience of Risk Work: Developing Theoretical Understandings

Call for Papers for 2017 Annual Health, Risk & Society Special Issue on Risk and Social Theory

Special issue editors: Patrick Brown (University of Amsterdam); Nicola Gale (University of Birmingham)

Abstract

In this Call for Papers we invite risk researchers to submit articles for a special issue of Health, Risk & Society scheduled for publication in 2017.  The special issue will focus on The Practice and Experience of Risk Work and will bring together articles which develop theoretical understandings of the experiences and practices of various front-line practitioners who are required to interpret and manage risk within their everyday work. The deadline for submission is 30 November 2016.

 

Call for Papers

This special issue, to be published in 2017, aims to bring together articles which develop theoretical understandings of the experiences and practices of various front-line practitioners who are required to interpret and manage risk within their everyday work.

While a significant body of literature regarding the nature of street-level work amidst uncertainty already exists – within political science, sociology, policy studies and beyond – there are somewhat fewer studies considering the specific practices by which risk knowledge is handled and interpreted in everyday work or, moreover, of the meanings and experiences of risk workers. Where the interpretation, presentation and management of risk is studied (from our reading, Horlick-Jones 2005 appears to be the only theorist to use the term ‘risk work’), the focus tends to be placed upon the organisational, discursive and/or policy dynamics (ibid.; Castel 1991; Mishra & Graham 2012), or on the power dynamics associated with risk and their varied and sometimes unintended effects in re-shaping patients’ and publics’ subjectivities (Davison et al. 1991, Petersen 1997, Lupton and Tulloch 2002, Järvinen 2012).

Much less attention has been devoted to how the work of interpreting, managing, and/or communicating/translating risk is pragmatically negotiated amid a host of relation, professional and organisational dynamics (how risk work ‘gets done’ c.f. Horlick-Jones 2005) and, moreover, of the everyday lived experiences and conditions of work.

Central to these pragmatic practices and experiences (as is apparent in our own research and a small number of studies already in existence – e.g. Warner and Gabe 2004) appear to be a range of tensions which are characteristic of risk work. These tensions may emerge out of the limited and sometimes contradictory knowledge-bases on which the ‘risks’ which inform everyday work are inferred (Gale et al. 2011; Maconachie & Lewendon 2004), the difficulties in applying probabilistic information regarding large populations within advice given to individuals (see Heyman et al. 2013), and balancing the need to intervene (through communication or other forms of risk ‘minimisation’) with the need to maintain positive trusting relations with one’s client group (Brown and Calnan 2013). The organisational context, alongside the professional/working identities of those carrying out risk work, will bear importantly on how these tensions are experienced and negotiated. 

We would very much welcome articles which address these and related themes with the aim of developing theory around risk work.  While we are chiefly interested in research carried out within health and social care contexts, we will also consider empirical and theoretical studies regarding other contexts where ‘risk work’ is practiced at the border (or street-level – Lipsky 1980) between large organisations and those outside the organisation – be they patients, service-users, clients, customers or wider ‘publics’.  One important development within various European welfare states is the rise of para-professionals – lay health workers and peer support in the management of risk – and we would encourage any papers that explore whether the rise of risk work is resulting in a reconfiguration of existing professions through the co-option of new domains of practice, or whether it is producing a new group of healthcare workers to meet this need.

Authors are encouraged to contact the special issue editors beforehand to discuss the suitability and focus of their article submission.  The editors are happy to offer advice and to look at draft outlines of potential articles. You can email either Patrick Brown (p.r.brown@uva.nl) or Nicola Gale (n.gale@bham.ac.uk).

The deadline for submission is 30 November 2016. Submission should take place through the Health, Risk & Society Manuscript Central online platform and authors should pay close attention to the instructions for authors when preparing their manuscript – http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=chrs20&page=instructions#.VVxksZU9LIU   

If you are unfamiliar with the journal then you should read the Editor’s advice which provides clear and useful information on the scope of the journal and its house style – http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/authors/CHRS-Editor-Advice.pdf
