Chronic Illness and Palliative Care
Education and Practice
Dr Mitchell's research mainly focuses on older people living with chronic conditions. Over the past few years he has also been involved in research projects which have examined safe-staffing in care homes, the use of digital audits in long-term care facilities and the effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions in dementia care.
He is interested in qualitative research, particularly those with an ethnographic methodology. He has recently concluded an ethnographic project which focused on healthcare professional-patient communication about oral chemotherapy.
