Introduction
My expertise in research, education and clinical practice is in the area of dementia care. I have over 30 years experience as a mental health nurse and over time combined this with teaching and research. An overarching theme to my work is exploring and implementing methods and approaches that enable the 'voices' of people with dementia to be heard. I have interests in the use of Life Story Work and a range of initiatives to enable the meaningful involvement of people with dementia.

Article
Person-centred care has been linked with quality of care but difficulties remain in person-centred care being implemented in care practice. This study explores the use of life story work to enhance person-centred care with people with dementia. The study investigates how life story work is: understood and developed in practice; experienced by all p...
Article
The aim of this paper is to review the literature on life story work in health and social care practice. Life story work as an intervention has been used with a number of health and social care clients, such as children people with learning disabilities, older people on medical wards and with older people who have dementia. It may help challenge ag...

Design and methods: An in-depth case study analysis was undertaken to understand the experiences of people with dementia, family carers and care staff in using life story work...
Article
This article reports on an evaluation of the effect of an on-ward volunteer service in an acute orthopaedic ward with a number of dementia patients. A mixed-methods evaluation was undertaken in 2012. This included interviews with individuals who have strategic, management, operational and clinical roles in the voluntary organisation and the NHS tru...
Article
This paper aims to: • Consider the major challenges to involving people with dementia in qualitative research. • Critique a process consent framework. • Demonstrate the need for nurses and researchers to explore these issues in research and practice with people with dementia. • Consider the impact of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 on research with pe...
Article
Full-text available
Background: More older people are living in the community with multiple diagnoses and medications. Managing multiple medications produces issues of unrivalled complexity for those involved. Despite increasing literature on the subject, gaps remain in understanding how, why and for whom complex medication management works, and therefore how best to...
Article

Together, these complex factors are challenging for older people, informal carers, and health and care practitioners. Objectives MEMORABLE (MEdica...

Article
Full-text available
Whilst the support requirements of people diagnosed with young onset dementia are well-documented, less is known about what needs to be in place to provide age-appropriate care. To understand priorities for service planning and commissioning and to inform the design of a future study of community-based service delivery models, we held two rounds of...
Conference Paper
Objectives Older people are major users of medication. Their use of medication is increasing, over the last 20 years the number older people taking at least 5 medicines has quadrupled to nearly 50%. They should be taking medication that gives them more benefits than harms. As people get older or their health changes, the balance between benefits an...
Article
Global policy places emphasis on the implementation and usage of advance care planning (ACP) to inform decision making at the end of life. For people with dementia, where its use is encouraged at the point of diagnosis, utilisation of ACP is relatively poor, particularly in parts of Europe. Using a constructivist grounded theory methodology this st...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Medication-related adverse events have been estimated to be responsible for 5700 deaths and cost the UK £750 million annually. This burden falls disproportionately on older people. Outcomes from interventions to optimise medication management are caused by multiple context-sensitive mechanisms. The MEdication Management in Older people...
Article
Full-text available
There exists compelling evidence that advance care planning (ACP) remains a key factor in the delivery of appropriate end of life care and facilitates the timely transition to palliative care for people with dementia. Take up of ACP within the dementia population is low, especially when compared with other conditions. Quantitative research has help...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Literature agrees that post-diagnostic services for people living with young onset dementia (YOD) need to be age-appropriate, but there is insufficient evidence of ‘what works’ to inform service design and delivery. Objective: To provide an evidence base of age-appropriate services and to review the perceived effectiveness of current in...
Chapter
Undertaking research with people with dementia has historically been perceived as problematic, especially as the condition advances and where there are concerns over capacity to make decisions and give informed consent. Much research that does include people with dementia as participants tends to focus on people early on in the condition. By not in...
Article

Aims To explore the experiences in the use of ACP amongst spousal couples affected by dementi...
