For 12 years she lectured part-time at the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care at Kings College London, supporting the delivery of evidence-based palliative and end of life care academic education.

Liz is committed to driving local, national and international development of palliative and end of life care. Her particular focus is on designing and evaluating programmes of transformational learning that have sustained impact on practice. Liz designed the QELCA© Programme which is being delivered by St Christopher’s CARE partners in the UK and abroad. For example, in China and Brazil, QELCA© is being used as a tool to build capacity, as culturally adapted palliative care services evolve to meet the needs of the population. Liz continues to lead on this programme as Education Senior Associate at St Christopher’s CARE.
