About me

I am a Senior Lecturer in Rheumatology Nursing. My post has a combination of research and student education roles in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery.

With expertise in observational studies, randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews, I am passionate about applied research that addresses clinical questions of importance to patients and patient care. My publications comprise 50 papers, over 50 peer-reviewed abstracts and three book chapters.

My clinical background is in rheumatology and musculoskeletal care with extended roles. I teach undergraduate evidence-based practice and supervise undergraduate dissertations and postgraduate research.

Prior to joining UWE Bristol, I held Lecturer and Research Fellow posts at the University of Leeds where I completed my PhD in 2011. My thesis looked into outcomes of nurse-led care for people with rheumatoid arthritis.

Outside UWE Bristol, I have had leadership roles within British Society for Rheumatology and European League Against Rheumatism. I am Associate Editor of Rheumatology Advances in Practice, an official journal of the British Society for Rheumatology. I am a regular contributor to the UK and the European annual rheumatology conferences and a reviewer to more than 20 rheumatology, nursing and healthcare journals.

Area of expertise

Working in the rheumatology research group means that our team has wide-ranging research expertise utilising both qualitative and quantitative methods. The group has an international reputation in patient-centred research around rheumatoid arthritis fatigue, self-management and outcome measurement.

Area of expertise includes: 

  • Evaluating the effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions using observational studies, randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews. 
  • Developing and validating outcome measures using both traditional and modern psychometric approaches.
