I teach across a range of interprofessional subject areas specialising in research and evidence-based practice. Within these subject areas I deliver a full range of topics from qualitative methods and methodologies to quantitative approaches and statistical analysis. Other teaching areas include head injuries, long-term neurological conditions, alcohol related health issues, problem-based learning and a range of clinical skills.
My principal research interests lie in how families are affected by head injury. I pursued this interest through doctoral study with the University of Southampton and hold a PhD entitled “A study of family transition in the first year post-head injury: perspectives of the non-injured members”. Additional research expertise include the use of narrative inquiry methodologies and the value of pre-nursing care experience in nurse education.
