Research Summary

His main research interests are in the fields of ageing, dementia, palliative care, and clinical decision making.


He has secured funding from various funders, including: Marie Curie, The Alzheimer’s Society, ESRC and the NIHR, totaling over £6.9 million. His recent work has developed a toolkit of rules-of-thumb for practitioners making end of life care decisions for people with dementia. This has successfully been implemented in NHS trusts, general practice, and has been used to inform local guidelines and policy documents. The toolkit is also being used for training by organisations including the Alzheimer's Society, independent nurse consultants, and community nursing teams. They are currently being used in a mass training programme across Greater Manchester with all care home staff.


In 2020 he secured funding from the ESRC/UKRI Covid-19 fund to develop a decision guide to support carers of people with dementia who have Covid-19 making decisions about their care at the end of life. This guide is used in the NHS and was implemented in the national NHS England Dementia Covid-19 wellbeing care pathway.
