I lecture in a broad range of topics related to mental health nursing, and am particularly interested in working with people who experience psychosis. Previously, I was involved in developing the use of health data to inform and drive service improvements in mental healthcare. This work has been adopted by NHS England and is now mandated nationally.
Before joining Sheffield Hallam University, I was the clinical lead for a regional programme that combined statistical approaches with clinical expertise to develop a needs-led classification system for mental health service users. The work was subsequently adopted by NHS England and Monitor and is now nationally mandated. Since then I have continued to undertake quantitative research, based on analyses of local and national mental health datasets.
I have an MSc in Health Informatics and have designed a range of different elements of electronic patient records including patient self-assessments and staff assessment tools. I am interested in turning data from these sources into real-time clinical decision support.
Having worked as a Director of Transformation in the NHS, I have a continued interest in change management, programme management, Toyota Production Techniques (LEAN) and leadership techniques.
I am a Specialist Nurse Practitioner in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Psychosis and have a passion for working with people who hear voices and their families. This fits with my role as the collaborative course leader for Sheffield Health & Social Care NHS Foundation Trust's PG Dip in Recovery in Mental Health and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy courses. I am also the departmental lead for the theory and practice of prevention and management of violence and aggression
I deliver sessions in most modules of the undergraduate and post graduate pre-registration mental health nursing courses.
I have recently completed my doctoral thesis through the publication of seven research articles related to:
"Characterising, assessing and responding to the needs of people with intellectual disabilities and people with mental health problems".
I have a particular interest in quantitative research and hence most of my publications were of this nature.
