Sarah Hoare is a Research Associate working on a Marie Curie funded project to facilitate the redesign of community end-of-life care provision through the creation of a toolkit, working in collaboration with colleagues at the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre and Sheffield Hallam Lab4Living.
Sarah completed her PhD in the department in 2016, in which she sociologically explored hospital admissions for patients close to the end of life (ACE Study). She was supervised by Dr Stephen Barclay and Professor Mike Kelly and her work was part-funded by the NIHR Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) East of England. Prior to this Sarah completed a BA in Politics and Sociology at the University of Exeter and an MPhil in Educational Research Methods at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge.
Sarah’s broad research interest is the role of society in everyday practice. Her PhD looked 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 a Research Fellow at Hughes Hall and supervises on the first-year medicine course ‘Social context of health and Illness’. She previously co-convened the Unit’s Qualitative Research Forum and is a committee member of the British Sociological Association Medical Sociology Group.
