Research interests

I have a longstanding interest in education in palliative care completing a Master’s degree (MMedEd) in 1992 and his PhD work in 2002 with a submission entitled “Changing the way that doctors learn to care for people who are dying”.I have also collaborated with international colleagues on aspects of the good death and public awareness of hospice and palliative care. I am involved in the supervision of PhD students investigating a wide range of topics related to care near the end of life. I also have links with colleagues at the University of Auckland and AUT University, Auckland in the areas of exercise science and the assessment and measurement of quality of life as well as with the Patient-Centred Rehabilitation Centre. I also work closely with colleagues at the University of Otago on aspects of spirituality in end of life care.

In Sydney my research interests are varied but include aspects of spirituality in end of life care; the nature of care and the doctor-patient relationship; pharmacovigilance; gief and bereavement; collaboration in palliative care teams and teaching and learning about the end of life.

Teaching and supervision

In 1989 I became a full-time specialist in palliative care with a responsibility for a large urban and rural population in SW England. I was involved in education for all Macmillan nurses in England and Wales at that time and developed an academic interest in education. I was asked by the Lisa Sainsbury Foundation to undertake teaching about end of life care in a number of sites in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. I have also taught in Malta and was asked to represent the WHO at a palliative care conference in Kishinev, Moldova and ran lectures and workshops there. I also had the opportunity to teach about palliative care in Missoula, Montana. I havealso been asked to teach and present research findings in Borneo, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Japan on a number of occasions.

I have collaborated with international colleagues on aspects of the good death and public awareness of hospice and palliative care. I have been active in education for generalists (particularly GP CME), involved in teaching a number of postgraduate courses (and undergraduates) at both the University of Otago and the University of Auckland and have produced interactive continuing professional education for general practitioners and other health professionals.

My other university teaching interests focus on the way doctors learn to carefor people near the end of life.
