Profile

I joined the Clinical Skills team in 2014 as a Clinical Skills Educator. I also work full time in General Surgery as a Nurse. In addition to this I am also a registered mentor to Student Nurses within the ward environment.

My main responsibilities at Clinical Skills include the planning and development of the delivery of clinical skills; using evidence based practice seen and utilised on the ward, as well as the actual presentation of teaching sessions. I also act as an assessor for undergraduate students in their practical assessments.

On the wards I supervise students in ward based practice of Clinical Skills. In the future I am hoping to develop further learning tools which will collaborate the learning needs of student healthcare professionals to assist them in working as a team when on the ward.
