  • Intervention development in palliative and end of life care (both malignant/non-malignant conditions) to enhance psychological wellbeing and quality of life
  • Validation and implementation of outcome measures, particularly quality of life measures and psychological distress screening tools
  • Building resilience in healthcare professionals
