Kerry Jones

Dr Kerry Jones is a Lecturer in End of Life Care at The Open University. Previous to the OU Kerry has researched and taught at universities in the south West of England following a career in the health and social care sector with older adults and individuals with learning disabilities. Her research and teaching focus is on death, dying and bereavement, end of life care across the life course, and nurses’ encounters with care of the dying. Kerry has published and presented her work on stillbirth, neonatal death, parental bereavement, paediatric palliative care, brain injury, dementia and suicide. More recently, Kerry’s focus has turned to the impact of loss on men following perinatal death, and the impact on nurses in caring for the dying and their families. As Area Lead for the Professional Doctorate in HSC, Kerry supervises two PhD students and two students on the Professional Doctorate Programme in Health and Social Care. As well as research and teaching at the OU, Kerry was academic consultant on death and dying for the BBC 2 television production A Time to Live, which was broadcast in May 2017, and was interviewed about the programme for BBC Three Counties Radio.
