I am responsible for the development, co-ordination, and delivery of teaching in areas such as interprofessional learning and teamwork.I have worked in LIME since 2003. Prior to my role as Interprofessional Learning Co-ordinator I worked in the department supporting communication skills teaching and patient involvement initiatives. I co-chair a number of networks supporting students at undergraduate and postgraduate level, new and early career researchers and clinical staff interested in clinical education. These include the Clinical Education Network and the LIME Lecturers Network.
My areas of research interest are interprofessional education, workplace learning and patient involvement. I am specifically interested in the ways in which people (students, qualified professionals, patients) learn and work in academic and practice settings and the impact on identity.
