Senior Lecturer in Pre Qualifying health care
I am a senior lecturer in nursing and programme leader for the PGDip/MSc Nursing (Adult). I predominantly teach on pre-registration modules and my specialist interests lie in research and evidence-based practice.
I am module leader for ‘Research methods for practice’ (level 5) and regularly contribute to ‘evidence-base for practice’(level 4). However I also contribute to modules across the pre-registration programmes including interprofessional learning activities.
I hold a PhD in nursing entitled “A study of family transition in the first year post-head injury: perspectives of the non-injured members”.
I also have a professional interest in evidence based practice and how students develop research skills to inform this.
Current research interests include:
The impact of head injury on the family
Use of narrative inquiry to inform and support healthcare practice
Pre-nursing care experience
