Personal profile

Research Biography

I have over 30 years experience in Palliative and End of Life Care. As an author and moderator on the Dying2Learn Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from 2016 to 2018 my research interests have grown in the areas of Compassionate Communities, and bereavement rituals. I am also leading research into the role of Death Doulas in end of life care. As a co-investigator on the End of life Essentials project my research interests have been in the areas of end of life care in acute hospitals, and as a senior lecturer in postgraduate palliative care I have looked into elearning and practice change.
