About me

I joined UWE in 2013 as a Senior Lecturer in learning disabilities nursing.  Since working at UWE, I have taught across all aspects of the pre-registration learning disability nursing curriculum, including module leading for the undergraduate dissertation module, a public health module and second and third year practice modules.  I have a special interest in patient and public participation, and learning from service user narratives.  Since working at UWE, I have supported and developed service user and family carer participation in the pre-registration nursing curriculum, recognising its importance in improving and developing effective healthcare and service user experience.


I am currently studying for a UWE-funded PhD, using an inclusive research approach to explore supported healthcare decision-making with adults who have a learning disability, supervised by Dr Sally Dowling, Professor Julie Mytton and Associate Professor Andy Gibson.  I am working in partnership with the MISFITS theatre company in Bristol (led by people with learning disabilities) to make a film in order to disseminate my research findings in an accessible format. ​


I have experience of undertaking externally funded evaluations using qualitative methodologies, working as a member of Professor Pam Moule’s CHCR Evaluation Team.  I have contributed to and/or led several evaluations in different areas of healthcare.  I am currently working as part of an NHIR funded feasibility study exploring the use of Prism glasses with patients who have had a stroke.  This study is in partnership with the University of Manchester.​
