I currently teach across a range of programmes and modules including BSc Nursing, Physical Assessment and several Continuing Professional Development Programmes.
I am the Programme leader for the Dip HE (Assistant Practitioner) programme and I feel strongly that all staff working as Health Care Assistants should have development opportunities.
I am involved in delivering teaching to pre-registration and post registration nurses with a special interest in Drug Calculations. I also contribute to a range of bespoke training packages for NHS partners.
My main teaching interests include adult nursing, primary care and Diabetes.
