My current areas of research interest concern:
- Palliative care provision in care homes, including for people with dementia
- Public education and awareness approaches around end of life issues, particularly for older people. See www.conversationsforlife.co.uk/community-resource/ for a newly developed community resource about community engagement and public awareness and end of life issues
I seek to work in a collaborative way actively involving people in the design and undertaking of this research and have undertaken a number of action research projects in both these areas. I am also supporting public and user involvement in research and public engagement activities.
