Research overview

My research interests centre on palliative and end of life care and bereavement. In particular, I am interested in how services are organised and in the lived experiences of those who use them. My PhD research explored continuity in supportive and specialist palliative care services and examined some of the tensions that exist between the policy rhetoric and actuality of service utilisation. My current work to some extent reflects this theme.  InSup-C is a 4 year pan European study which aims to establish recommendations on best practice in integrated palliative care pathways in advanced cancer and chronic disease.
