Research Statement

My research involves improving the quality of life of palliative care patients and their healthcare providers, along with improving palliative/end-of-life care education. My research also involves the role of music therapy as a therapeutic option for a range of mental and physical health issues. I have conducted a Realistic Evaluation and have been involved in a large scale randomised controlled trial. I am currently involved in a randomised controlled pilot and feasibility study along with conducting and publishing a number of systematic reviews and qualitative papers.
