A series of briefs showcasing the impact and global reach of research by QMUL’s School of Business and Management launches today.
The Research Insights series will present key findings from across the fields of social justice, sustainability and good governance - from fertility care to global fisheries, and from gender violence to post-Covid working practices. Each brief provides an easy-to-absorb summary of the research, plus key recommendations that emerge for practitioners, leaders and policy makers in the relevant field.
Professor Liam Campling, Associate Dean for Research at the School of Business and Management, stresses how this work could positively impact policies and practices: “Our Research Insights series showcases the breadth, depth and diversity of research topics we offer in SBM’s vibrant research environment. We are highlighting these areas of research for their potential impact on a national and global stage, across a wide range of business disciplines.”
Dr Elena Doldor, Research Impact & Engagement Director in the school noted: “The school has a longstanding commitment to producing socially impactful research -- this series showcases our engaged scholarship. The briefs share cutting-edge research and provide actionable insights to leaders and decision-makers at various levels of business and society, helping to shape debate and better practice across areas of social justice, sustainability and good governance.”
Research Insights will launch with the piece: ‘Sharing time-lapse videos with IVF patients – research insights to support best practice in fertility care’.
Led by Dr Manuela Perrotta, Reader in Technology and Organisation at SBM, the brief shares insights from a project exploring the relationship between professional and patient perspectives on reproductive technologies. The brief uncovers the unintended consequences of sharing videos of embryos with patients without providing adequate information, offering valuable insights for refining best practices in fertility care.
It’s described as a ‘must-read’ for stakeholders in the world of fertility care, including fertility clinic directors, representatives from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) as well as patients seeking IVF treatment.
