Dr Steve Marshall is a social worker in the palliative care team at King’s College Hospital and is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at King’s College London. Steve combines research and teaching with clinical practice and has a particular interest in supporting children and young people.
Steve was co-PI and lead researcher on a recent Marie Curie funded project which involved interviewing 32 children and young people about their experience of living with a parent with a life-limiting illness. This research has provided the basis of evidence-based guidance for healthcare professionals working with patients with a life-limiting illness who have dependent children.
Steve is a Churchill Fellow and has recently returned from Norway and Sweden where he explored the concept of children as next-of-kin.
