I joined the School of Nursing and Midwifery (SNM) in January 2014 from the Academic Unit of Supportive Care, where I worked on numerous palliative care and end of life studies. Within the SNM I am University Teacher in Adult Palliative and End of Life Care. I also lead the Oral History Group which focuses on oral history research in healthcare and works with palliative care providers in establishing oral history projects.
In 2007 I established an oral history project in the Palliative Care Unit, Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, to create life history recordings as personal and family records and for use in research and education. Since then I have established further oral history projects in England and Northern Ireland based on the Sheffield model and in 2016 extended this work to people with dementia.
My research interests are palliative care and end of life issues, oral history and life story methodologies with a focus on older people, qualitative research methods, medical humanities, history of medicine.
Oral history in palliative care; inequalities in health; research skills.
I have leading roles with the Oral History Society (UK), as Trustee, accredited trainer, Regional Network Representative (S.Yorkshire) and Website Coordinator.
