Sarah Hoare is a PhD Student and Research Assistant working on a medical sociology study exploring hospital admissions for patients close to the end of life (ACE Study). She is supervised by Dr Stephen Barclay and Professor Mike Kelly and is funded by the NIHR Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) East of England. Before joining the department Sarah completed a BA in Politics and Sociology at the University of Exeter and an MPhil in Educational Research at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge.
Sarah’s broad research interest is the role of society in everyday practice. Her PhD looks at end of life care provision in England by considering the interaction of individuals, professional groups and organisations involved in the care of patients who die shortly after admission to hospital.
Sarah is co-convenor of the Unit’s Qualitative Research Forum and is a Postgraduate Research Student Representative on the British Sociological Association Medical Sociology Group Committee.
