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 nursing curriculum, including co-module leading the undergraduate anatomy, physiology and pharmacology for nursing module, dissertation/Final Project modules, a public health module and practice modules specifically for learning disability nursing.  

My primary research interests are the application of the Mental Capacity Act in healthcare practice, supporting healthcare decision-making and learning from service user narratives/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.  I have contributed to and/or led several evaluations in different areas of healthcare.  I have also worked as part of an NHIR funded feasibility study (in partnership with the University of Manchester) exploring the use of Prism glasses with patients who have had a stroke.
