About me

I joined UWE as a senior lecturer in July 2013. I contribute to many of the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing research and practice modules, as well as the BSc/MSc continuing professional development short courses, and the MSc Advanced Practice programme. Within this time, I have also taken on the role of module leadership for the postgraduate module "Physical Assessment and Clinical Reasoning (PACR)", and co-module leadership for the BSc Adult Nursing Dissertation.

Clinical Experience:

Throughout my career, I have worked in a variety of clinical practice settings - care of the elderly, orthopaedics and trauma, accident & emergency, critical care, urodynamics and urology research. My passion and interest in all things urological then developed; I specialised in functional urology, where I became a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) in the urodynamic unit at Southmead Hospital/North Bristol Trust, and senior research nurse in the Bristol Urological Institute. In 2008, I received the prestigious lifelong award of Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF) Scholar, following the successful completion of my MSc Advanced Practice.

As a CNS the many facets of advanced clinical practice (research, education, and leadership) became an integral part of my role. I was a course tutor for the Bristol Urological Institute 'Basic Urodynamic Course', 'Certificate in Urodynamics' (2000 - 2014), and latterly at advanced level for the 'Expert in Urodynamics Course' (2013 - present). I was also actively involved with urodynamic educational workshops on a national and international level, where I was the co-founder (2009) for the first International Continence Society conference ‚Äč'hands on' urodynamic workshop. This multi-disciplinary educational workshop model was well received, and has since been rolled out to the British Association of Urological Nurses, and the European Association of Urology conferences. This collaborative working experience subsequently led me to apply for a post with the European Association of Urology Nurses (EAUN) scientific congress office (SCO); where I was successfully appointed for a 3-year term (2018 - 2021).
