About

I am an acute and critical care registered nurse by background. I have a special interest in patient safety, simulation-based education and education debriefing.

I teach into the MSc Healthcare Education course and I am supervisor to a number of MSc Nursing and MSc Advancing Practice dissertation students. My particular interest in education is the use of simulation and facilitated debrief in healthcare education. I have an MSc in Medical and Healthcare Simulation from the University of Hertfordshire, which I completed in 2014.

I am post-doctoral having been awarded a Doctor of Education in July 2022. My thesis was titled: "A study into the experiences of pre-registration nurses' use of mental simulation" and examined the use of mental simulation for learning cardio-pulmonary resuscitation skills from the perspective of pre-registration student nurses. I have a special interest in the field of education, education and pedagogical research. I am particularly interested in using sport science and sports psychology techniques for learning within healthcare education.

I am an Advanced Life Support (ALS) Instructor with the Resuscitation Council and teach on courses throughout the region and I teach both Basic Life Support for the University
