Professor Katharine Barnard  PhD, Chartered Health Psychologist, specializes in human factors assessment and the psychosocial impact of disease. She has a longstanding research interest in human factors, patient engagement and quality of life assessment. Her extensive evidence-based, theory-driven research portfolio has provided valuable insights into factors contributing to therapy choice, technology uptake and quality of life; behavioural interventions and the far-reaching impact of disability and disease on individuals and their family members.

Prof Barnard is currently leading on human factors assessment, patient preference, trade-offs and psychosocial assessment of diabetes technologies; she is an Expert Adviser to NICE; a close collaborator with the FDA and is the UK psychological lead on research to enhance patient engagement, optimised self-management heath behaviours, device functionality and human interaction thereof.


Diabetes Technological Revolution: Winners and Losers?


Professor Barnard has collaborated and consulted with the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Care Companies (including Animas Corp, LifeScan Inc, & the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute) over the past several years, working specifically with us as an Expert Key Opinion Leader, as a keynote speaker at international scientific and professional education events and in a research capacity. A member of our Animas Academy scientific advisory board, Professor Barnard provides diabetes-related specialist advice, making a valuable contribution to the team. Her knowledge and experience in de-mystifying the complex area of psychological interventions and psychosocial aspects of diabetes as a chronic disease has been invaluable to my team.

KALMOD Behaviours For Health provides a novel, individually tailored health service to improve patient empowerment, quality of life and improved disease self-management.

The underpinning Kaleidoscope Model of Care is unique. It is a holistic, wide-reaching model that addresses all aspects of living with chronic conditions to improve outcomes.

  • Provides an easy-to-use package of care for each person and their healthcare professional designed to meet their individual needs, streamlining healthcare processes and challenging current boundaries and norms of operation.

  • Streamlines healthcare delivery in consultations, without extending consultation time.

  • Facilitates more focused, productive consultations for people with diabetes and healthcare professionals to ensure each are able to achieve their own targets.

  • Removes the pressure from healthcare professionals to provide ‘the’ answer without really understanding personal barriers to self-management.

  • Removes pressure to conform to treatment that may not fit with individuals’ preferences and circumstances.

  • Identifies person and treatment options/medical devices to be aligned for best long-term, sustainable usage

  • Is scalable, modifiable to other chronic health conditions, adaptable to different languages, easily updatable to meet new care pathways and at minimum cost.

  • Significantly improves the healthcare experience, improves outcomes and reduces the risks of long-term complications by engaging patients in a holistic assessment, with responsibility for self-management with the patient and responsibility for the process and delivery of best practice healthcare with healthcare professionals.
