I'm a Programme Leader for the MSc Advanced Occupational Therapy programme and teach across both the MSc post and pre-registration programmes in Occupational Therapy.

Teaching responsibilities

A range of modules across the MSc post and pre-registration programmes including 'Introduction to Master's Level Study',  'Foundations and Principles of Occupational Therapy', 'Research Methods', and 'Independent Scholarship'.

Professional interests

As programme leader for an MSc course, I am passionate about the development of post-registration learners. I have a strong interest in evidence-based practice, the advancement of skills to support EBP in the workplace and the development of skills to maximise research utilisation and implementation. This is reflected in my research interests exploring the impact of practitioners engagement in health and social care research.
