Moses Murandu holds an appointment with the University of Wolverhampton’s Faculty of Education Health and Wellbeing as Senior Lecturer. Moses’ remit is to provide excellent teaching environment to students, research leadership and support and be a role model for healthcare practitioners in the caring sciences, fostering a culture of enquiry and practice innovation, in which people thrive.
Moses studied nursing at Maluti Adventist College of Nursing in Lesotho and worked clinically for 16 years, in the UK and South Africa. Supported by the University of Wolverhampton he completed a PhD in 2015 at the University of Birmingham on the effects of granulated sugar on microorganisms (In Vitro); and the effects on necrotic exudating wounds using three NHS UK Hospitals. The study also involved attitudes and knowledge of nurses on the use of this method of wound care. This work was the springboard for a programme of research that generated an international audience and has contributed to renewed debate on this forgotten method of wound care given the increasing cost on wound care in the NHS and globally.
Moses’ completed work, funded by the Fondation de France compared 42 patients who suffered from necrotic wounds. The results were so encouraging that BBC featured the study in their One Show and their subsidiary BBC West Midlands, BBC North West and BBC Scotland. The same work was featured in Russian Television. There were also numerous Local and International Newspaper citation including the Daily Mail, Daily mail online and other local papers as well NHS trust Internal newspapers. Both the University of Birmingham and the University of Wolverhampton published their own stories within their institution. In December 2015, Dr Murandu presented the work at various Universities in Zimbabwe including the University of Zimbabwe Medical School Post Graduate Committees. He was also invited to meet and discuss how this can be implemented into the Zimbabwean hospitals by the Deputy Minister of Health. The work was presented at the Ministry of Health in Lesotho at request by the Minister of Health. The research was awarded third place in the Journal of Wound Care Awards 2015 as the Best Research from a Developing Country.
