My name is Lynne Westwood and I’m a very proud & passionate Learning Disability Nurse Lecturer here at the University of Wolverhampton. Within my work at the university I enable our students (along with my colleagues from the Learning Disability Nursing Team) to develop current knowledge, skills and attitudes around working with / for people who have a learning disability plus their carers / families. I support students in university though the modules I run (explore core issues and therapeutic interventions) and in their practice placement. I work collaboratively with the Learning Disability Directorate at a local NHS trust. Together we have put on conferences and presentations at national events. I support the sensory room we have as an educational tool for our students and I am a keen exponent of power of sensory integration, person centred working and multi-agency approaches. I engage actively with Twitter & FaceBook around the subject area of Learning Disability participating in #WeLDNurses Twitter Chats about national subjects. I work collaboratively across the Faculty of Education Health & Wellbeing were possible increasing the opportunities available for our student nurses. I have recently engaged in some research with the WIDEN group exploring the thoughts and feelings of people who have learning disabilities around the topic of Parliament and the 2015 General Election.
