I work as a Lecturer with the University of Sheffield and as a Senior Nurse with Sheffield Health and Social Care Trust. 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. I contribute to the South Yorkshire Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) Translating Knowledge to Action (TK2A) theme.
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 lead two modules on the MA Dementia Studies programme. I also lead programme of taught content on dementia care on UG and PG pre-registration nursing courses. I have led a Dementia Friendly initiative in the School which has seen over 100 students and staff become Dementia Friends, has piloted 2 Dementia Cafes and has introduced the use of performance into student learning.
