I am an experienced nurse academic who is committed to the delivery of quality, evidence based education for the development of mental health nurses and their practise. I am dedicated to incorporating the voice of the consumer in shaping the design and delivery of education and services. I support the promotion of values based nursing interventions and ethical managment in my work. My role includes supporting undergraduate, masters and doctoral students across the School's programmes. My research and publications are reflected in my teaching and supervision. I am particularly interested in personalisation and construction of identity as well as warrants of convention applied to mental health contexts.
