My research focus is on palliative care in adult patients with heart failure. I am interested in research tools which have been used for identifying heart failure patients who have palliative care needs. Also, I have an interest in the development of complex palliative care interventions for these patients, guided by the (theory of change) approach.
5 years working as an instructor, preceptor, and hospital-based trainer in the Faculty of Pharmacy, Nursing and Health Professions at Birzeit University, Palestine
3 years working as a pharmacist in both community and hospital settings (Augusta Victoria Hospital, Jerusalem)
2 years working as a medical representative in the marketing department in the Medical Supplies and Services company, Palestine
I was awarded the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) scholarship for my Master of Science degree in Clinical Pharmacy in Jordan for the whole study period (2010-2012) where I did a research about (the role of clinical pharmacist in the control of blood sugar in diabetic patients during the month of Ramadan).
I also got the Higher Education Scholarship for Palestinians (HESPAL) offered by the British Council, Palestine to get my Ph.D. degree in Medicine from Lancaster University beginning from 2018.
I am making a systematic review of tools which have been developed and used for the identification of adult heart failure patients who have palliative care needs. My next project will focus on the development of a complex palliative care intervention through a participatory research approach, where the research team will work collaboratively with study participants in group workshops to construct the detailed intervention, including how its elements may interact with each other to achieve a fundamental ultimate impact.
