I have carried out several pieces of research and been lucky enough to collaborate with some fantastic supervisors and colleagues on this. 

I have an ongoing research interest into compassion fatigue and ways of helping to prevent this.

I am currently co-supervising a doctoral thesis at Bath University on how we measure compassionate care, and undertaking my own project in inpatient adolescent units on what compassionate care looks like in this setting, funded by the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health.
