Combining knowledge, skills, insight and expertise developed over 30 years in clinical and educational delivery environments across the United Kingdom (UK) and internationally, I have built a comprehensive research, practice and education portfolio around children and young people. I am a widely recognised nurse specialist in the care of children and young people with cancer. I have played a leading role in developing many child health evidence-based practice initiatives both within my previous University and more widely across the UK.
My PhD thesis, entitled ‘A Life Interrupted: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis of Young People and their Family / Significant Other Living with Malignant Melanoma’ was submitted in January 2020. Viva was March 2020.
Research interests are nursing children and young people living with cancer. Palliative and end of life care. Pedagogy.
