Mr Stephen J. O'Connor

As Senior Lecturer in Cancer and Palliative Care at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College and an MPhil/PhD student at the Department of Educational Research in Lancaster, I am interested in all aspects of continuing professional development, particularly in relation to lifelong learning, advanced practice and the social construction of professional knowledge through work-based learning. I am also interested in culture and policy change within nurse education and health service environments, and am currently registering to complete my PhD within the Department.
