I am employed at Derby University as a senior lecturer in mental health nursing and I have current Nursing & Midwifery council (NMC) mental health nursing registration. I also have a teaching qualification registered with the NMC.
I teach on BSc and MSc pre-registration mental health nursing and interprofessional programmes. I supervise doctoral students and have 2 PhD completions. I have external examiner experience at masters & doctorate level. I also have experience of facilitating continuing professional development (CPD) and consultancy activities in dementia, mental health awareness and mental health in older people. My research experience covers a wide range of subjects and tends to be focused on qualitative methods.
