The sub-study is a mixed-methods study, using Normalisation Process Theory to structure data collection and analysis of clinicians', patients' and carers' perspectives on the experience of and attitudes about morphine use for chronic breathlessness.

She has a PhD from the University of Hull entitled: The Experiences of Feminist Academic Activists Attempting to Challenge the Rules of the Game in UK Universities.
