Research overview

I am a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Palliative Care at Lancaster Medical School. From a research perseptive, I am based within the International Observatory on End of Life Care. I am also the research lead for Research lead (Marie Curie Hospice Liverpool) and a former Research Scholar for the (National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) North West Coast Clinical Research Network (CRN)). Clinically, I work as an Honorary Consultant in Palliative Care at the Royal Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

My PhD project involved the use of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) to evaluate hydration in advanced cancer. For this work, I was awarded the 2014 Twycross Research prize of the Association of Palliative Medicine and received joint 3rd place for the Early Researcher Award of the European Association of Palliative Care (EAPC). I also won the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) conference prize on two occasions (2012 and 2014). Previously, I have completed a number of clinical-academic posts as part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Integrated Clinical Academic Training (ICAT) pathway.

I am the ‘Digital Technology’ Editor for the ‘Palliative Medicine’ journal (SAGE Publications). In this role I produce podcasts to enable dissemination of the journals’ work to a wider audience. My research interests includes (1) the evaluation of technology to support care for patients with advanced disease and (2) the use of clinically assisted hydration to manage symptoms.
