Pauline McCormack works as a Research Associate with the Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences group at Newcastle University. Pauline is looking at the social and ethical issues associated with the treatment and care of neuromuscular disorders.
Pauline’s background is in education where she researched and worked with ‘disadvantaged’ learners. Pauline is hoping to explore the patient voice and particularly how ideas about standards of care and quality of life differ between patients, clinicians and health professionals. She is also interested in how far government and EC policies on ethics serve the concerns of individual citizens.
