Research

Whilst I have a background in undertaking adolescent research  my most recent collaborative research was the Heritage Lottery Fighting For Our Rights Project  which collected and shared the oral histories of the Disabled Activist from 1950-1990 in Kingston (http://www.kingstonfightingforourrights.co.uk/

Currently my focus is understanding  the impact of the Heritage2Health Buddy Scheme for all stakeholders and expanding this programme collaboratively to other university-communities in the UK.  Through this work I am  exploring the philosophical underpinning of professionalism as a relational concept in order to better prepare the becoming  nurse for the uncertainties of practice.
