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.
Recently I have taken up the post as Module Leader for the Non-medical prescribing for nurses and allied health practitioners. I also work as a honorary memory nurse with SWYPFT that enables me to prescribe medication as part of my role (I am a qualified V300 Prescriber).
Research & Scholarship
University research group memberships
I am currently a member of the Institute for Research in Citizenship and Applied Human Sciences and the Centre for Health and Social Care Research.
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.
A major part of my role in the division of mental health at the University and in collaboration with South West Yorkshire Foundation Trust is improving the experiences of service users who receive medicine management services from mental health nurses. In a cross-region collaboration I have been 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. Evaluating the project will the form the basis of my PhD by publication submission and has produced several peer reviewed articles. I have also evaluated physical healthcare education and training initiatives at the University with several publications adding to the knowledge on this important part of the mental health nursing role.
