In June 2006 I was made a Professor in Nursing at De Montfort University in Leicester, and have been a Tissue Viability Nurse Specialist for 28 years with extensive experience in both hospitals and the community. I have written 54 publications and have contributed to 4 NICE guidelines on Pressure Ulcer Prevention.
I have led the development of new programmes of education and training, and facilitated changes in practice to develop new roles to enable practitioners to develop competencies ensuring they are fit for purpose. I have worked collaboratively with higher education; for the last 28 years I have taught undergraduate nurses on wound care and risk assessment. I have experience of organising Clinical Care Conferences that were focused on various health-related topics.
I have also organised regional study days with other colleagues in Tissue Viability. By employing a tailor-made education package on all aspects of wound care and pressure ulcer management, we develop educational study days that are RCN-accredited and meet the needs of all levels of practitioners, including qualified nurses, allied healthcare professionals and healthcare assistants. This is then backed up by the website’s online consultation forum.
I have worked collaboratively with legal firms to assist with medical legal cases for patient assessment and reports.
