Lecturer in Physiotherapy
I have been involved in teaching at the University of Salford firstly as an external lecturer since 2011 and now as a part-time lecturer since December 2015. I am involved in the teaching and assessment of the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy programme with particular interests in paediatrics, respiratory care and simulation-based teaching. Alongside my University role, I continue to work clinically at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital where I am specialised in Paediatric Intensive Care Physiotherapy as well as treating children with a wide range of respiratory and rehabilitation needs.
I am involved in the teaching delivery of the undergraduate physiotherapy programme and contribute predominantly to the cardiorespiratory components and in assessment and management of complex physiotherapy practice which includes teaching through high-fidelity simulation and paediatric care.
I am interested in research in paediatric respiratory care and literature surrounding the educational benefit of simulation-based teaching. My MSc dissertation evaluated the confidence and perceived competence of paediatric physiotherapists delivering respiratory care following simulation-based training.
