Research Output per year
I took the position of Lecturer in Perioperative Practice at the University of Huddersfield in September 2015, having previously held the position of Operating Department Practitioner at the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary (since January 2001). During this time my teaching and research portfolio has developed in the fields of workplace safety and simulation. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in the NESTLeD project, a collaborative project with simulation equipment company Laerdel and universities in Europe where I developed a teaching and learning package as a result of studies undertaken in 3 different countries. My work on diathermy smoke has been presented at a national Operating Department Practice conference and I hope to combine my interests investigating operating theatre safety and exploring the implementation of simulation based activities further for my doctoral studies.
