Dr Orr is interested in three broad areas of research that fit within the School of Nursing and Midwifery’s research theme ‘Inequalities’.

Potential PhD projects could be developed in the following areas:

1)   Research that explores patients’ experiences of living with long term health conditions (LTC), with a view to producing recommendations about how health professionals may best offer advice and support to patients and carers.

2)  Research that focuses on how health professionals can successfully support older adults and their carers through healthcare transitions.

3)  Research that will further explicate informal carer involvement with drug services, specifically in relation to what works best, when and for whom.
