About

I joined FEHW as Professor of Learning and Teaching, Health in Higher Education in September 2017

A nurse by background my NHS career included acute and practice nursing and management, as Chief Officer of the East Yorkshire Community Health Council (CHC) which involved me in supporting patients with the information needs, and complaints handling.

As well as holding a nursing qualification I’m a Chartered Fellow of BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, and a member of the International Medical Informatics Association’s Nursing group, where I lead a group on Participatory Healthcare and Nursing; and also a member of the Participatory Health and Social Media Working Group.

My research interests centre on learning in health, and participatory healthcare. This includes how the Internet and social media can help people living with a long term condition develop and support their self-management strategies. Exploring how this changes the nurse’s (and other healthcare professional’s) relationship with their patients and how it is addressed in pre-registration education programmes are underpinning interests. I have completed projects with the NHS, including an evaluation of a telehealth programme.

I am also interested in developing research methodology (and associated research ethics) underpinning the use of online resources in research, and ways of sharing the outcomes of research with both academic and lay audiences.

An experienced PhD supervisor and examiner I enjoy supervising full and part time students  on a range of health and education related topics.
