Research Overview

My research expertise is in palliative and end of life care. I have two main research interests: the way that palliative care is provided especially within primary and community care settings; and the experience of symptoms at the end of life. Current or recent projects the impact of COVID-19 on palliative care (2020-2021), the experiences of those receiving immunotherapy (2022-24), establishing a palliative care research network across NWC England (2021-23), the NIHR funded Palliative and End of Life Care Policy Research Unit (2024-2026), and Horizon Europe funded projects I-CLEAR (2024-2028) and In-Touch (2024-2028) . I am also interested in research methods and dissemination, and edit the journal 'Palliative Medicine'.
