Projects per year
I am a lecturer in adult nursing and act as co-module co-ordinator for the Evidence Based Nursing module in Year 1. I also teach across numerous postgraduate courses on research methods, evidence based nursing and evidence synthesis.
I am regularly involved in scholarly activity around developing and evaluating evidence based education programmes.
I am involved in the supervision of postgraduate and doctoral students.
Previously, I have taught many research methods classes for CPD, teacher training courses, MSc, MEd and undergraduate courses across education, social sciences, psychology and neuroscience.
My research is focussed on designing and evaluating educational resources and interventions for nurses, with a particular emphasis on caring for older people.
Education for improving nursing care of older people:
Current areas of focus: improving community nurses' oral health care for older people, reducing restrictive practices in care homes and education programmes centred around dementia.
Evidence-based programme design and evaluation: I am interested in using pilot studies, logic modelling, RCT methodologies and evidence synthesis to design, pilot and evaluate interventions for outcomes such as health and education.
RCT methodologies and mixed methods - I have managed numerous large scale RCTs and often work with multi-disciplinary teams to try and improve a range of outcomes, such as nurse education, public health, helping disadvantaged children and science education.
Application of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to education and programme design: With my background in psychology and neuroscience, I am passionate about applying the science of learning and memory to programmes for a range of outcomes.
