Abi has worked as a pharmacist specializing in palliative and end-of-life care in Birmingham for the past 15 years, both in the NHS and the hospice voluntary sector.

Many of these roles were cross-boundary and cross-sector and during this time Abi has developed an interest in providing equitable access to symptom management and medication, no matter where the care is required.

More recently Abi has set out on a new adventure to use and develop her skills acquired in palliative care in a new setting of ‘out-patient antimicrobial therapy’ whilst working with the antimicrobial charity the British Society for Antimicrobial Therapy.

Abi is a content author for the e-PAIN project.

Working cross-sector and in acute and chronic pain management, Emma has developed a particular interest in the factors involved in pain becoming problematic and long-term as well as the misuse of prescription analgesics.

Emma is involved in a number of groups associated with improving pain education amongst all medical professions as well as pursuing research into the use of opioids and the additional health and economic burdens they pose.
