Senior Lecturer BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing Practice

I have been a qualified Mental Health Nurse since 2004, and have worked extensively with older adults who have a variety of complex mental health needs, in a range of settings which include organic and functional inpatient wards, community and day hospital settings. I have also specialised in Older People's Liaison Psychiatry Services which involved assessing people in the acute general hospital. As part of this role, I contributed on behalf of the trust to the National CQUIN target for improving the care of people with Dementia and Delirium.

During the past three years I worked as a Nurse Specialist for people with dementia for Newcastle Hospitals before joining the University of Sunderland in 2018.

I am very interested in older people, in particular caring for older people with dementia and delirium within an acute hospital setting. I also have a specialist interest in training and education for acute hospital staff in relation to caring for patients with dementia and or delirium.

Teaching and supervision

I currently teach on the BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing Practice delivering various modules and lead NUR111 Developing Professionalism in Nursing.
