Research

Overall my research is committed to key nutritional problems faced by older people that impact on health and wellbeing especially the complex problems faced by people living with dementia.

My current research studies/areas of interest include:

1. Improving the delivery of nutritional care in people with dementia living in the community (care homes and people living at home). We have completed a study, funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing to provide new research informed evidence based toolkit for training and education and currently measuring the impact of their dissemination and spread.

2. Nutritional interventions in ageing and effects on neurogeneration. This arear of work specifically targets dietary interventions to improve metabolic function and effect on neurodegenerative processes for the prevention and management of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s Dementia.

3. Nutrition in older people at risk or having undernutrition and ways to improve identification and management of nutritional care in the community. We currently have funding from the Burdett Trust for Nursing to investigate the barriers and facilitators for implementation of a new procedure for nutrition screening in community care for older people.

4. Way to improve the delivery of research informed nutritional advice in training and practice for health care professionals, specifically for people living with and beyond cancer. This areas of work builds on research funded work with Macmillan Cancer Support to develop a new online resource for health care professionals on nutrition for people who have had a cancer diagnosis and completed treatment.
