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 Principle Admissions Tutor, Disability Liaison Officer and teach on 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.
