I am the Clinical Research Manager in the Patient Experience Research Centre (PERC). I have been a Nurse for 38 years and have worked primarily in HIV and Sexual Health. I also have a background in Medical Anthropology.
My expertise is in patient involvement in health care, clinical nursing care, HIV and qualitative research.
Within PERC I have completed and published a qualitative study looking at the patient and staff experience of the nursing handover within acute ward settings.
I am currently analysing our study “Understanding the individual journeys of people living with HIV in the context of changing guidelines and care pathways”. I am part of a team evaluating the impact of an Experience Based Co-design Project in cancer outpatient services.
I teach on a number of courses at Imperial and Kings regarding Qualitative Research Methods, Civil Society and HIV, NHS and the Workforce and HIV and Nursing.
