Natalie joined the School for Business and Society in 2021 after completing her PhD in the Sociological Studies department at the University of Sheffield. Her PhD research adopted an ethnographic approach within a hospice to explore the day-to-day experiences, emotional management practices and the relationships of hospice staff. Natalie has expertise in using qualitative and ethnographic research methods to explore the work of staff within a hospice setting. Her wider research interests include: experiences of social suffering, hospice work, children’s palliative care and sensory methodology.
The aim of this study is to gather evidence the NHS and children's hospices can use to guide how they meet the pastoral, spiritual and religious needs of children and young people living with a life-threatening or life-shortening condition, and their families.
This project will develop a Patient-Reported Experience Measure (PREM) for use in children's palliative care settings.
