Personal profile

Research interests

Having done a first degree in Philosophy, I worked in the health- related voluntary sector and the National Health Service for 15 years, developing an interest in health promotion and public health. This led me to write my doctoral thesis on moral problems in the theory and practice of health promotion. I have continued to try and combine my philosophical and health- related interests through teaching and research in the areas of health promotion theory and policy, philosophical and conceptual understandings of health and health care, and the ethics of health promotion policy and interventions. I am also interested in the historical development of health promotion and public health as policy and practice, and in health care professional education.

Research interests (short)

Health promotion theory, practice and history; public health ethics; healthcare professional education.
