After qualifying as a General Nurse in 1978, specialising in Intensive Care Nursing, I entered academia. During my career at the University of Sheffield I have worked as a Lecturer, School of Nursing and Midwifery (1992-1999);  Senior Lecturer (1999-2004);   Reader & Head of Department (2003-20006) and became Professor of Palliative Care Nursing in 2006. I currently hold a Visiting Chair at the University of Auckland, New Zealand and an Honorary Chair at Anglia Ruskin University. I took retirement from the University and was awarded an Emeritus Professorship.

I have published over 200 papers in peer  reviewed journals, including  the BMJ,  Age and Ageing  and Palliative Medicine, amongst others. I have co-edited three best- selling text books in the area of palliative and end-of-life care and contributed to over to 10 book chapters.


RGN (1978); RCNT (1986); B.Ed. (Hons 1990); MA (1993); PhD (1997).

Research interests

Over the past twenty five year I have been involved in a number of multi-disciplinary research projects and have led and contributed to 38 research grants and awards totalling over £28. 75 million, supported by NIHR, SDO, and EU amongst others.
