About me

I am a Registered General Nurse with a Specialist Practitioner qualification in PalliativeCare. I work part-time in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport. My current professional roles are: Lecturer in Adult Nursing, at the University of Stirling, where I teach on the undergraduate and some postgraduate programmes, and am Module Coordinator for NURU 220 – Assessing and Managing Symptoms in Palliative Care. I am also a supervisor of both Masters and Clinical Doctorate students. I practiced for 13 years as a nurse in palliative care, in hospice, community and hospital settings, caring for patients with cancer and non-malignant conditions, as both staff nurse and clinical nurse specialist; the latter roles included some educational and research activity. I completed my PhD, a study centred on participant observation of nurses’ response to patients’ psychosocial needs in a specialist palliative care setting, in July 2016.
