I joined the Division of Nursing and Midwifery (DNM) in January 2014 from the Academic Unit of Supportive Care, where I worked on numerous palliative care and end of life studies. Within the DNM I am Director of Student Recruitment and in a teaching capacity work with undergraduate, postgraduate, foundation and CPD programmes.

I also lead the Oral History Group which focuses on oral history research in healthcare and collaborates with palliative care providers in establishing oral history projects. Key to this work has been the development of a bespoke training and development programme for hospices and palliative care centres to enable delivery of oral history projects within their centres that complement experience of care.

Research interests

My research interests are palliative care and end of life issues, oral history and life story methodologies, qualitative research methods, medical humanities, history of medicine.

Current projects

Oral History in Palliative Care. Sheffield Macmillan Unit for Palliative Care, Northern General Hospital. I established this project in 2007, it is open-ended and subject to funding. The project creates life history recordings with patients as personal and family records and for use in research and education.
