Field lead - learning disabilities
BA Hons, MSc, RNLD, SCLD, PCTHE, TCH, SFHEA.
I am an experienced Registered Nurse (Learning Disabilities) (RNLD) (NMC), qualified nurse lecturer (TCH), Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA), 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).
Doctoral researcher at The Open University.
My primary interest is in the health of people with a learning/intellectual disability.
In my early research career my focus was 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 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.
