Research

Currently undertaking research exploring prognostic indicators for end of life in COPD and how these could be utilised to enable access to palliative care.

Other interests include exploring the student experience in simulated learning. But also if student confidence is increased following simulated learning, and more importantly whether or not this correlates with competence.
