I am a lecturer at the International Observatory on End of Life Care, where I teach on the PhD in Palliative Care. This is a blended learning approach, which includes some face-to-face teaching but predominantly online distance-learning, using a virtual learning environment.

My main research interest is symptom management and I have been involved in a number of clinical trials. I also conduct systematic reviews for the Cochrane Collaboration; in particular, about symptom control in palliative care.

My other research interests are around how to conduct research with palliative care patients, including issues around recruitment, gatekeeping by staff and retention.
