Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing

I am Senior Lecturer for BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice and Module Lead for Integrated Practice Placement 3 (ADN301).

I have a range of experience in healthcare and education. As a registered nurse, I have worked in acute and primary care settings, with roles including District Nurse, Non-Medical Prescribing Advisor, Tissue Viability Nurse and Senior Nurse for Medicines Management. I have also contributed to Primary Care organisational development and leadership in a North Yorkshire NHS Trust.

As Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader, I have been involved in the delivery and leadership of adult nursing, nurse prescribing, and district nursing programmes as well as contributing to medical education.

I have experience in delivering education and training to students, teams and groups in the NHS workforce and in higher education settings.

My recent doctoral study was inspired by my experiences of collaborating to deliver integrated care, and I have a keen interest in collaborative approaches and partnership working in health and education.



Teaching and supervision

l Iead the Integrated Practice Placement 3 (ADN301) module and contribute to teaching and learning across the undergraduate nursing courses.

I enjoy the communication involved in presenting people with new ideas and applying theory to practice situations. I enjoy supporting undergraduate and postgraduate students to learn about the theory and practice involved in delivering evidence based, personalised care, as well as the issues involved in leading and supporting change at individual and organisational levels.

Research

My recent doctoral study was inspired by my experiences of collaborating to deliver integrated care, and I have a keen interest in research which involves collaborative approaches and partnership working in health and education.

  • Nurse education
  • Collaboration and partnership working
  • Skills and systems which support self-care
  • Co-constructed care
  • Medicines management
  • Decision making in health and care
  • Service development  

My roles in the NHS have enabled a strategic view of clinical governance issues and enabled me to be directly linked to practice development in a range of areas. I have provided specialist advice across the range of health services and taken a lead role in developing a number of projects to establish new medicines services. This has involved translating theory and national guidance for implementation in practice through collaboration, policy development, education and advice to practitioners.

I enjoy the communication involved in presenting people with new ideas and applying theory to practice situations. I enjoy supporting undergraduate and postgraduate students to learn about the theory and practice involved in delivering evidence based, personalised care, as well as the issues involved in leading and supporting change at individual and organisational levels.

I value collaborative, multiagency approaches in healthcare and education, and I am passionate about promoting processes which support self-management and deliver personalised care.

My roles in the NHS and in higher education have embedded my focus on quality and I strive to promote and assure the best quality work. My professional aims are to influence healthcare practice through education and to promote safe, caring and personalised experiences for service users. I firmly believe that this is best achieved by working collaboratively to achieve the highest professional standards.

My recent doctoral study was inspired by my experiences of collaborating to deliver integrated care, and I have gained a great deal from investigating collaboration between patients and professionals in complex healthcare situations.
