Paul Galdas

Paul is a Reader in Nursing (Assoc. Professor) in the Department of Health Sciences, University of York, UK. His PhD, examining the influence of masculinity on men’s help-seeking behaviour for cardiac chest pain, was awarded in 2006 from the University of Leeds (UK). Since this time he has developed a programme of research investigating men’s help-seeking and engagement with health services in a variety of issues including coronary heart disease, depression, perinatal mental health and chronic illness, and has published widely on these topics. His current research focuses on identifying ways to integrate understandings of masculinity into the design and delivery of health services in order to make them more effective, accessible and acceptable to men.

Paul is a registered nurse with a clinical background in medical and cardiology nursing, and held academic positions at the University of British Columbia, University of Sheffield, and Sheffield Hallam University before joining the University of York in 2011.
