Profile summary

Professional biography

My role with the Faculty of Health and Social Care in the Open University is multi-faceted and enables me to be involved in research, teaching, supervision and external collaborations.  My research is oriented in four main directions:

a) Health policy and planning: evaluation and improvement of health service delivery; and addressing the future health needs of communities.

b) Public health / health of citizens and populations domain: improvement of outcomes for elderly persons & evidence base used for improving patient / student outcomes in health care.

c) Education and improvement of skills, specifically, in mental health professionals.

d) Development of evidence base in several areas of health and social care.

Previous and current academic and management responsibilities include the development of teaching curricula and the co-ordination of a teams of teaching and administrative staff. I have undertaken a number of satellite responsibilities such as participating in Board of Studies, CPPD Advisory Board, Ethics Committees, Chairing academic committees, leading staff-student liaison committees, programme periodic reviews and employing external examiners and providing extensive pastoral care and academic support to BSc, Master and PhD level students.

In my current role as Knowledge Exchange & Enterprise Lead for the School of Health, Wellbeing and Social Care at The Open University, I promote strategies which positively impact on my colleagues' research skills and outputs. I do also strive to facilitate the development of internal and external networks as well as other platforms which enable the exchange of ideas, knowledge and practice. 

The role gives emphasis on a two-way exchange between the academia and the wider spectrum of societal and business stakeholders to promote health and social care locally, nationally and internationally. 

I welcome expressions of interest from potential PhD & EdD & DHSC candidates.

Research interests

I have an on-going interest in ways via which we can improve health and quality of life outcomes in older adults.

I have been presenting the ‘Ageing Well Public Talks’ series in collaboration with Third Age University and Free Time University overseas for the past 15 years and more recently so in collaboration with primary care practices in the UK. Currently I am also collaborating with Age UK MK, Public Health Northamptonshire, Carers MK, UKeMED & Cambridge Medical Academy (for whom I act also as an Advisor on Ageing), BLMK partnership, East of England Academic Health Science Network and the and Voluntary Health Scotland on delivering ‘Ageing Well Public Talks’.

I am delighted to announce that Series 2 of  ‘Ageing Well Public Talks’, will be offered at The Open University in Milton Keynes in the Berrill Lecture Theatre on OU Campus from 1 am -1pm. Starting September 2020 (for more information please see attached flyer). 

For more information on current ald also previous Series 1 of the 'Ageing Well Public Talks' please see also OU NEWS, OpenLearn Create free course on Ageing Well Public Talks 2019/2020  or ORDO Collections.

This work is accompanied by 5 mini lectures on specific topic relating to Ageig Well: Nutrition, Hydration, Physical, Social and Cognitive Stimulation. (https://doi.org/10.21954/ou.rd.c.4716437.v1) See also latest Open Learn article including mini video lectures: https://www.open.edu/openlearn/health-sports-psychology/mental-health/five-pillars-ageing-well (https://doi.org/10.21954/ou.rd.c.4716437.v1)

COVID-19 and 'Five Pillars of Ageing well resoursec below relate to very specific circumstances applying during lockdown due to the pandemic of COVID-19 virus.

I have also an ongoing interest in ways by which we can improve postural stability, prevent falls and engage older people living with or without dementia in exercise. See more at https://www.keepmewalking.info/

I have been recently appointed as Academic Consultant on BBC Programme Series titled All in the Mind. https://www.open.edu/openlearn/search-results?as_q=all+in+the+mind

I am also making a contribution to the development of evidence base for the effective use of eHealth applications. This is multidisciplinary and international in collaboration with Imperial College London, the Nanyang Technological University Singapore & Karolinska Institutet.

I was recently involved as co-investigator in two mental health studies which are funded by the NIHR National Institute for Health Research (COCAPP and COCAPP-A).  Both studies aim to identify the components that are most important to ensure that care planning and coordination for people with severe mental illness is: recovery-focused, personalised & collaborative.

I contributed (via data collection, data analysis and presentation of findings - see conferences below) to Preceptorship study funded by East London Foundation Trust to evaluate their mentorship (Preceptorship) programme for newly qualified mental health nurses.

In the past, I was also collaborating externally (data analysis - see publications below) on HAPIEE study with University College London. The HAPIEE study is a cohort study that assesses the effects of dietary factors, alcohol consumption and psychosocial factors on the health of men and women aged 45-69 years in four countries of Central and Eastern Europe, which undergo rapid social and economic transition. The HAPIEE study has received funding from the Wellcome Trust, the MacArthur Foundation and the National Institute on Aging.

Public Lectures 

  • 2005 - present:

For fourteen years, I have been delivering a series of lectures in the community (overseas, and in the UK), specifically targeting those people who are hard to reach. Public Lectures were delivered in collaboration with Third Age University, Charles University Prague and University of Free Time in Czech Republic within Successful & Healthy Ageing series.
