Kathryn Almack

University of Hertfordshire, England
Main Research Areas: Palliative and end of life care; bisexual ageing; care and housing in old age
Biography: Kathryn Almack is Professor of Health and Family Lives in the School of Health and Social Work, University of Hertfordshire. She is a sociologist whose research has had a substantial focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) older people, ageing and end of life care. Her ground-breaking research in this area includes:
  • Working with the Government’s National End of Life Care Programme 2008-2013 to address inequalities in end of life care facing LGBT people Three major studies funded by the Marie Curie Research Programme
  • The Last Outing: the UK’s largest study on the experiences and needs at the end of life for LGBT people aged 60+
  • ACCESSCare A: Exploring access to and delivery of palliative care for all LGBT people
  • ACCESSCare B: Bereavement outcomes for LGB (lesbian, gay and bisexual) and heterosexual partners: a population-based cross-sectional mixed methods study
  • Improving care home environments for LGBT residents and staff
  • The first studies to investigate the knowledge, attitudes and practice of staff in care homes towards LGBT residents
  • An innovative Research Council funded seminar series on gaps in knowledge about LGBT ageing. This culminated in a book, Older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans Adults: Minding the Knowledge Gaps published by Routledge in 2019.
Kathryn has an established national and international reputation in this field. She has co-edited a number of international collections for special journal issues and another book collection ‘Intersections of Ageing, Gender and Sexualities: Multi-Disciplinary International Perspectives’ (Policy Press, 2019). Findings from her research have fed into a number of UK government consultations about inequalities in end of life care and been used to develop new resources for policy makers, health and social care professionals. Kathryn has a previous background in community development work and maintains a strong commitment to user involvement in research.
