Key Research Interests

My direct involvement in research has been a minor activity in my career although it informs my teaching.

Urgent care, Minor Injuries and Emergency care remain my areas of interest.

Teaching Interests

My main areas of teaching are Minor Injury and Emergency Care at post graduate/registration level, and fundamental skills for pre-registration nurses.

I am also involved in issues of society and management, hence I am involved in organisational culture sessions for management modules and sociology in a variety of programmes and modules.
