Dr Kerry Jones
Dr Kerry Jones is a Lecturer in End of Life Care since 2016.
In this time she has been the Media Academic for the BBC2 production ‘ A Time to Live’ which was televised in May 2017. This documentary was nominated for the South Bank Awards in London and has generated much interest including an interview Kerry conducted with BBC 3 -------- Radio in May 2018.
Given the recent pandemic much of my focus is on conducting rapid reviews and systematic reviews on the following:
- Children and young people's death anxiety during the pandemic.
- Care home staff experience of grief, loss and support suring Covid-19.
- Acceptance and commitment therapy by spouses and partners of patients experiencing palliative care.
- Frailty and grief in the older population.
- The use of green spaces in recovery from trauma among the older population in the UK.
Kerry currently facilitates the OU online seminar series 'Grief and bereavement in the workplace: supporting others during Covid-19' and 'Depression in the Workplace: supporting others to manage and thrive.'
As well as a Lecturer in End of Life Care, Kerry is an Area Lead for the Professional Doctorate in Health and Social Care (Care and Advocacy) and Qualifications Lead for Health Sciences and Health Care. Working with the module teams on the Masters in Nursing, she is engaging in production of the module in my role as Accessibility Lead for HSC WELS.
Kerry has obatined the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education as well as Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).
