Greg’s research focuses on the experience of hospital inpatients with dementia. The medicalised, unfamiliar, and unpredictable hospital environment presents many challenges, and patients with dementia experience higher rates of agitation, delirium, depression, and anxiety. A growing area of research has shown the potential of arts in health programmes for lowering psychological burden and increasing wellbeing for hospital inpatients with dementia.   Based at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, Greg uses mixed research methods to investigate outcomes of interest including psychological health, quality of life, and wellbeing. Having completed a cross-sectional study, he is now beginning an ethnographic investigation and 3-arm controlled study in hospital dementia wards. His current research involves the use of digital media for arts interventions. Of particular interest are the comparative impacts of digital programmes on engagement, anxiety, and wellbeing.
