Lecturer in Adult Nursing
Matthew completed his nurse training at the University of Manchester and worked initially in acute medicine at the Manchester Royal Infirmary before undertaking a masters degree in wound healing and tissue repair at Cardiff University. He later undertook specialist roles in tissue viability and infection control which he practiced in hospitals across central Manchester up until his appointment as a lecturer in nursing at the University of Salford in September 2020. He still practices tissue viability clinically on an honorary basis and he currently leads the postgraduate modules in tissue viability and leg ulcer management at Salford. In addition to his university role Matthew is a commissioned officer in the British Army reserve where he has responsibility for infection control. Matthew notably developed a new process for managing outbreaks of infection (the infection control estimate - ICE) during the COVID-19 pandemic based on military planning processes.
His current work includes research focused on the use of digital technologies by nurses and how these can be used to improve clinical outcomes, particularly in the areas of tissue viability and infection control. He is currently leading Project ICE, this project involves the development of a software package for the management of outbreaks of communicable disease.
