About

I am a registered adult nurse and an operating department assistant. My primary clinical interests lie in medicine and older adults, dementia and long-term care.

My PhD was entitled 'Perspectives of Decision Making in a UK Care Home: A Grounded Theory Study'. I have a BSc in Psychology, an MA in Medical Ethics and Law, an MSc in Social Research Methods and PGCert in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. I have held a number of posts in mental and physical health and social care research and have sat on an NHS Research Ethics Committee.  I am a reviewer for, amongst others, the journals Nursing Ethics and International Journal of Nursing Studies.
