OUP: Author Biographies [cached]

Max Watson: Oxford Handbook of Palliative Care (2005)

Max Watson completed degrees in Theology and Medicine at Edinburgh University before undertaking General Practice training in Northern Ireland. As a junior hospital Doctor he became a devotee of the Oxford Handbook series as a practical help and support through the loneliness of many an on-call night. Interest in medical literature which is concise, accurate and practical has become something of a life obsession! Married to a GP Max and his wife spent the next eight years in semi-rural Nepal where they worked in a busy general hospital at Tansen, 200 miles west of Kathmandu. They were involved in establishing Tansen as a GP training centre and developed protocols, guidelines and handbooks for rural GPs modelled on the Oxford handbook series. Returning to the UK in the late nineties Max took up a career in Palliative Care, with SPR training in both London and Belfast. During this training period he developed the eight week Certificate in Essential Palliative Care at The Princess Alice Hospice, and the guidelines for two London cancer networks. He is currently involved in research in cancer cachexia at the Belfast City Hospital and is a Locum Consultant at the Northern Ireland Hospice.
