Health and Social Care Institute
Steve is a social scientist and from 2004 to date, as a Senior Lecturer in Research Methods in the School of Health and Social Care, he has conducted library-based research concerned with health governance and inequality, ageing, death, and dying. He has presented invited papers on partnership working between palliative care professionals and communities to local, national and international audiences of palliative care professionals and published extensively in this area.
From 1985-90, he worked as a contract researcher in the NHS on a nursing organisation study and at the University of Leeds on primary education research. From 1991-2002, as a Lecturer then Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Lincoln (originally University of Humberside in 1990), he led applied and externally funded research projects concerned with: the health care needs of local communities (older people and mothers with young children); an out of hour’s mental health crisis service; and parental choice of secondary education. Here he also completed a PhD (University of Hull, 2000) concerned with social attitudes to ageing, illness and death amongst older people in and around Kingston upon Hull. From 2002 to 2004, as a Research Manager in the School of Social Sciences and Law at Teesside, he conducted and managed several externally funded evaluations of local Sure Start projects around Teesside and Redcar.
