I joined the University of Sheffield in 1985 and have worked as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Head of Department, Reader and more recently as Professor of Palliative Care Nursing. I became an Emeritus Professor at the University of Sheffield in July 2017 and continue to work on a number of projects and act as a Consultant at a number of institutions.
I have contributed to 40 research grants and awards totalling over £ 20.4 million. I have published over 150 outputs in peer reviewed journals and contributed to 6 books on health services research. I have edited four best- selling research based textbooks on end of life care.
I continue to work as a REF Advisor to Anglia Ruskin University and External Examiner at University College Dublin. I hold an Honorary Chair in the Department of Nursing at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I have chaired and continue to be a member of three European Research Councils grant reviews.
I have supervised over 20 doctoral students to completion and have examined over 30 PhDs as an External Examiner. I continue to provide supervisory support and act as an External Examiner.
My research interests are palliative and end-of-life care, views of informal carers, end-of-life care and older people, service evaluation and needs assessment, palliative care in general care settings, qualitative case studies and mixed methods.
My teaching interests are around issues concerned with end-of-life and palliative care in specialist and non-specialist settings.
I have served on 10 international research scientific committees. I am Fellow of the European Academy of Nursing Science and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. I have chaired and been a member of three European Research Councils grant reviews. I am Associate Editor for the BMJ in Supportive and Palliative Care and British Journal of Community Nursing. I am a reviewer for a number of academic journals and grant proposals in the area of end-of-life care.
