Reader in Palliative Care
Richard originally read social anthropology and conducted fieldwork in the Netherlands, followed by a Masters in Social Policy & Social Work Studies at the LSE.
His PhD addressed informal carers in palliative care. The thesis and subsequent papers appraised current evidence, undertook qualitative developmental work, and then designed and evaluated a short-term group intervention that aimed to provide peer support and multi-professional information across two home palliative care services.
His clinical experience includes HIV and palliative care management, acute adult health hospital social work and community care management. He also designs and delivers community-based groupwork focused on behavioural change.
His academic interests in palliative care are informal carers, HIV, palliative care provision in Africa, and evaluation of complex interventions. His broader interests are in behavioural interventions and HIV prevention. His current work is focused on palliative care in Sub-Saharan Africa.
