As a medical sociologist, Dr. Stacey’s work centers on the provision of long-term and end of life care in the United States. She has written extensively on the emotional labor associated with the paid carework of home care aides (The Caring Self, Cornell University Press 2011) and recently completed an edited volume on paid carework with Mignon Duffy and Amy Armenia (Caring on the Clock, Rutgers University Press, 2015). Dr. Stacey’s current research explores the growing hospice and palliative care movement in the US and documents the barriers patients and providers continue to face as they pursue quality end of life care.
