Research Overview

I have three main areas of research. Firstly symptom control in the last year of life and how best to support patients. I am particularly interested in the movement of fluid in the body. Secondly I am interested in service delivery in particular how we improve access of palliative care through integrated palliative care and advance care planning. Through work with PhD students this has led to work in assisted dying. Finally I am interested in research methodology in palliative care. Given the vulnerable group of people we work with there are challenges in recruitment and missing data.
