I have been a mental health nurse for two decades now, working mainly in the field of acute psychiatry in the early part of my career, found myself then in the peripatetic role of rehabilitation of the traumatically brain injured before returning to the acute adult context. I became a full time lecturer at the University of Sheffield in 1999 after spending a year there on secondment. I enjoyed my time in South Yorkshire building up strong links with service partners especially in the developing role of nurses as prescribers and have continued this when I transferred to The University of Huddersfield in 2006. I have been fortunate to actively have the experience of liaising nationally and internationally whether in scholarship, research or consultation roles and see this as an important part of the lecturing role in mental health.
As a father of 14 and 11 year old daughters this takes a lot of my spare time although I enjoy reading (sporting and history), going to the theatre and all things sporting especially running, cycling and hiking.
Teaching & Academic Responsibilities
My current role as Senior Lecturer has several interrelated components; these lie primarily within the following areas:
As a pre-registration module and post registration course Leader, I am responsible for measuring and maintaining quality and achieve this through ongoing evaluation.
I am Module Leader for the preparation for practise modules for the degree and diploma (Year 3) mental health nursing students, as well as course leader for the medicines management in mental health and learning disability post basic module. I contribute to a number of programmes for pre and post registration courses including the extended/supplementary prescribing course and MSc courses.
I provide personal teaching support for Pre-registration and Post-registration Nursing students, supporting students on the DNS/Bsc course in Mental Health, and post-basic courses.
Link Teacher Responsibilities
As a Link Teacher I proved support for students and placement mentors within Mental Health Placements. This involves continuous monitoring of learning opportunities and provision of advice. I have also been active in innovatory teaching and research in these areas (see Research Activities).
Research & Scholarship
I am a member of the editorial boards for the Mental Health Nursing Journal and the Journal of Mental Health and Learning Disability Research and Practice
I was a contributor to the Improving mental health services by extending the role of nurses in prescribing and supplying medication: Good practice guide produced by the National Prescribing Centre, National Institute for Mental Health and the Department of Health. This is also an ongoing project and am contributing to this exciting development for mental health nurses. I have also contributed to the Review of Mental Health Nursing in England and am a member of the guidance development group for the NICE appraisal of medicine concordance.
My scholarship and research activities have followed the care contexts where I have worked for example rehabilitation of the brain injured and telephone interventions top support the person in crisis and or mental health problems.
I have conducted survey questionnaires into the developments of mental health nurses as non-medical prescribers with the MHNA members perspectives on developing the role to the contexts and specialisms where it is developing in mental health care.
I have submitted two co authored commissioned chapters on aspects of non-medical prescribing in mental health care.
A growing part of my role in the division of mental health at the University and South West Yorkshire Mental Health Trust is improving the experiences of service users who receive medicine management services from mental health nurses. In a cross region collaboration I am involved in a project with the aims of improving the knowledge and skills of nurses pre and post registration when undertaking the medicines management role.
University research group memberships
I am currently a member of the Institute for Research in Citizenship and Applied Human Sciences and an associate member of the Centre for Health and Social Care Research.
