Prof Monique Lhussier

Professor

Department: Social Work, Education and Community Wellbeing

My particular interests lie in long-term conditions, palliative care, quality of life and the engagement of 'hard to reach' groups. I have been involved in a variety of research projects articulated around the needs of people with long-term conditions, palliative care and the engagement of 'hard to reach' groups. I have developed a particular interest and level of expertise in quality of life.

My doctorate highlighted different paradigmatic positions on quality of life, and used a deconstructive analysis of the dual oppositions underpinning the concept. It also incorporated and highlighted our cultural and political understanding of quality of life, through the deconstructive analysis of cultural artefacts and policy documentation.

Methodologically, as well as embracing postmodern approaches to research, I have co-developed and used variations of soft system methodology and realist evaluation and synthesis.  These have been particularly successful in the analysis and articulation of complex community interventions. 

I teach and supervise professional doctorate and PhD students.
