RNLD, SCLD, ENB 978, BA (Hons), MSc, PCTHE, TCH, FHEA, Oxford Brookes University Associate Teaching Fellow.
I am an experienced Registered Nurse (Learning Disabilities) (RNLD) (NMC), qualified nurse lecturer (TCH), Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), and masters-level graduate with varied clinical, teaching and management experience, with strong communication and information technology skills.
During my years as a registered nurse I have developed a specialist interest in the health needs of people with a learning/ intellectual disability in particular those individuals who have Profound Intellectual and/or Multiple Disabilities (PIMD/ PMLD).
In my early research career my focus has been on how nurses use eLearning in Professional Education.
I also have an interest in how technology can widen access to health information and developments in digital health literacy in particular Service User and Carer digital health literacy.
I am a member of the Social History of Learning Disability (SHLD) Research Group; the Carer Research and Knowledge Exchange Network (CAREN) research group and The Nursing Research Group.
My primary interest is in the health of people with a learning/intellectual disability.
I am a Lecturer in nursing and an enthusiast and advocate of Technology Enhanced Learning.
My priority is embedding Learning Disability Nursing theory and practice within the curriculum.
