About me

Teaching

Module Co-ordinator: Quality Improvement Projects in Healthcare - Masters in Advanced Practice. This innovative web-based module is highly recommended for all students undertaking dissertation study. It provides students with an in-depth knowledge of a number of quality improvement models and the skills to collect, aggregate, display and analyse data. I was awarded funding to set up an expert panel to advise on the content and delivery of this module. This funding was also used to purchase equipment to deliver podcasts via Succeed.

Module Co-ordinator: Dissertation - Masters in Advanced PracticeIn consultation with our clinical partners we have designed a new dissertation project framework based on the fundamental principles of quality improvement. Students undertake projects in their own workplace and are provided the opportunity to truly integrate theory into practice.

Honours Lead: We offer our students a top-up Honours year in addtion to our direct entry Honours programme. I lead a group of staff who run 3 modules for this important Honours year. Our modules encourage thoughtful, practioners who are capable of undertaking a small reasearch project.
