Lecturer in Health: Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care. Lecturing on Communication and ICT, Principles of Care, Acute Illness Management, Working with Older people, Therapy skills and Collaborative Care modules.
Since qualifying as a Registered General Nurse in 1987 I have worked across a variety of clinical settings including acute, hospice and community care. I gained my teaching and assessing students in clinical practice qualification in 1990 and have worked closely with students in practice since then.
I have remained committed to my own professional and academic development and have completed my BSC in Health and Professional Studies and Post Graduate Diploma in Community Specialist Practice for District Nursing here at the University of Bolton.
Having been inspired through academia to further my career I moved into Higher Education in June 2015 and am now committed to completing my PGCE and PhD in the foreseeable future. It is my aspiration to influence high quality care delivery within health care services through the delivery of quality assured educational programmes.
Specialist interests / publications:
My current interests lie within delivering high quality care in the community, pressure ulcer care and prevention and working with older people. It is my hope to be contributing to forthcoming publications relevant to these subject areas in the near future.
