Research Overview

My research expertise is in palliative and end of life care, a multidisciplinary field. My work is recognised and used to influence policy and practice to improve palliative care throughout the world. My research focuses on: the needs of older people and family caregivers, who have cancer and other chronic diseases, and evaluation of organisational and service configurations. There has been a step change in the growth and reputation of the International Observatory on End of Life Care (IOELC) which is now widely recognised for, not only international mapping, but for research and education that has built upon this foundation.
