I work as a Lecturer with the University of Sheffield and as a Senior Nurse with Sheffield Health and Social Care Foundation Trust (SHSC FT). I qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in 1987 and have worked in a range of clinical, practice development and teaching roles with an emphasis on the care of people living with dementia.
My research focuses on developing and evaluating methods and approaches that enable the knowledge of people with dementia to be heard in health and social care, research and education. My PhD explored the use of Life Story Work with people living with dementia. I was a Clinical Research Academy Fellow with the University of Sheffield School of Health and Related Research from September 2015 – 2017. I have a research lead role in the NHS with a remit to develop the research capacity and capability of mental health nurses within SHSC FT. I have an interest in research ethics.
I lead a programme of taught content on dementia care on UG, PG pre-registration nursing and Trainee Nurse Associate courses. I have led a Dementia Friendly initiative in the Division which has seen over 200 students and staff become Dementia Friends. I led 2 Dementia Cafes and have introduced the use of performance into student learning.
