Research interests

Margaret Sneddon joined the University as a Research Fellow in Postgraduate Medical Education to develop multi-professional palliative care education.  Margaret transferred to Nursing in 2001, where she led programmes on palliative care and lymphoedema, developing nationally and internationally recognised specialist education. She served as Head of the Nursing & Health Care School between August 2007 and July 2016.

Now formally retired, she continues to support the School and University as an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in various ways. Margaret leads the postgraduate course on Advanced Communication Skills and teaches and assesses on the lymphoedema programmes. She is also a Problem Based Learning Facilitator for Undergraduate Medicine and teaches in the School of Life Sciences.

Clinically, Margaret continues to work as an Honorary Lymphoedema Specialist in NHS Forth Valley.

Her passion for raising awareness and improving treatment and services for people with lymphoedema is also reflected in her additional roles, including Chair of the British Lymphology Society and a Director and Education Lead for the International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF). Margaret received an ILF award in 2009 for her outstanding contribution to lymphoedema education and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Lymphology Society in 2016.
