RMN (MH) BSc Nursing (Mental Health) PG Cert. (Dementia Studies)
I am a qualified and registered Mental Health Nurse specialising in the care of people with dementia, and particularly those people who experience severe behavioural and psychological symptoms as a result of their illness.
I have been a key member of the dementia knowledge exchange team at the DSDC since 2009. This role involves the development and delivery of education and information, including the flagship Best Practice in Dementia Care Learning Programme for which I won the Scottish Health Awards Nurse Award in 2014. I also lead on the support of students of the Best Practice Programme, and consult on dementia services.
