The Academy of Social Sciences has announced that it has conferred the award of Fellow on 43 leading social scientists.

Professor Sue Dopson, Rhodes Trust Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Saïd Business School, is a noted specialist in understanding and explaining the ways in which knowledge is created and adopted by health care organisations. Her research centres on transformational change and knowledge exchange in the public and healthcare sectors.
Dopson has led several research projects in the health service sector, including studies aimed at improving clinical effectiveness, exploring evidence-based medicine, developing the skills of healthcare managers, and investigating the changing role of healthcare assistants within the NHS workforce. This research has informed and influenced government bodies in their consideration of implementing clinical evidence into practice, medical leadership, and the role of the support worker in the NHS.
