Sue Dyson, EdD., is Professor of Nursing at Middlesex University. Her research field focuses on volunteering and volunteerism, educational experiences of international nursing students, the educational experiences of young people with sickle cell disorder, and pedagogic research to inform nursing and midwifery education. Her professional work considers how best to educate nurses, midwives and health care professionals to deliver meaningful and appropriate care in a post Francis era where the spotlight is on what nurses and midwives do and how they do it. In this sense her work is at the interface of education and professional practice, being concerned with the theory and practice of nursing as art and science. She is author of three books including Fundamental Aspects of Transcultural Nursing (MA Healthcare 2007), Fundamental Aspects of Research for Nurses (MA Healthcare, 2010), and Research Skills for Nurses and Midwives (MA Healthcare 2013). She is Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and the nursing representative on the World Wide Initiative for the Social Study of the Haemoglobinopathies (WiSSH).
