With clinical experience spanning areas like medical assessment and cancer care, Graeme is interested in any study or practice of nursing that leads to improvements in health and wellbeing; whether that be physical, mental, emotional, social or spiritual. He teaches on undergraduate and postgraduate courses and conducts a wide range of research in collaboration with clinical colleagues, academics from multiple disciplines, voluntary organisations and charities; involving the recipients of care and services at all stages. 

In particular, his focus lies in cultivating resilience, managing long term conditions, complementary medicine and spirituality in healthcare.

He is committed to the concept of clinical academic practice, where research informs practice and vice versa, and identifies as a pragmatic, quantitative-dominant, mixed-methods researcher, with experience in quantitative & qualitative research methods and evidence synthesis.
