Profile Summary

I am a Lecturer in Physiotherapy with a specialist interest in respiratory physiotherapy.  I lead on the cardio-respiratory physiotherapy content on the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy and have an interest in the use of High Fidelity Patient Simulation as a tool to facilitate learning.  I have worked as a physiotherapist at Salford Royal, specialising in respiratory physiotherapy.  My research interests centre on improving the patient experience of rehabilitation within Critical Care.  I have been involved in reviews investigating the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication strategies for voiceless patients in Critical Care and the patient experience of mechanical ventilation.  I have also been involved in  writing book chapters for Tidy's Physiotherapy and Psychologically Informed Physiotherapy.
