Personal profile

Research Statement

Research Statement

My research interests focus on communication and decision-making for family carers and patients within palliative care, in particular for individuals living with dementia and in the support of patients and family carers who are transitioning to palliative care. I also am interested in enhancing the provision of support for family carers of individuals living with dementia focusing on the availability of peer support facilities. 

I have helped design and conduct a cluster randomised controlled trial investigating the use of Advance Care Planning for individuals living with dementia residing in nursing homes, and also a cross-sectional survey reviewing GPs’ perceptions on palliative care for individuals with dementia.
