I have worked within the higher education sector for the past sixteen years, ten years of which have been as a principal lecturer in senior management and leadership positions. I have a proven track record of effective leadership and management, acting as a change agent to promote quality enhancement.
I have experience and expertise in the areas of clinical skills education including high-fidelity simulation, problem-based learning incorporating peer assessment, management of practice learning, and quality assurance, both academic and professional, of a range of professional programmes including nursing, midwifery, psychology, paramedics and physician’s associate.
I provide academic leadership for Service User and Carer engagement within the Faculty. Through the implementation of this strategy service user and carer engagement has been embedded within all aspects of recruitment, curriculum development and delivery, across a range of health and social care programmes.
I have a specific interest in the fitness to practise of nursing and midwifery students, which I am currently researching, and I am a member of the Faculty Suitability panel.
