About me

I am an Associate Professor in Rheumatology Nursing at the School of Health and Social Wellbeing, UWE Bristol, and Honorary Researcher at the University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundations Trust and the University of Bristol. My post has a combination of research, student education, and scholarship roles.

With expertise in outcome measurement and different quantitative designs, I am interested in applied research that addresses questions of importance to patients and patient care. My research in patient education, health outcomes, and rheumatology nursing has supported recommendations for practice and competencies of health professionals in rheumatology.

With a clinical background in musculoskeletal care, I teach evidence and research in practice, research methods and supervise postgraduate research. I also provide research mentorship to new graduates in nursing and allied health professions. 

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 held leadership roles within the British Society for Rheumatology and the European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology. I am Associate Editor of Rheumatology Advances in Practice.

Area of expertise

  • Observational studies addressing clinical questions of importance to patients and healthcare.
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of interventions using experimental designs and systematic reviews with meta-analysis. 
  • Developing and validating outcome measures using both traditional and modern psychometric approaches.
