Paediatric Asthma Nurse Specialist and Asthma Clinical Lead in the Black Country
Facilitation Coordinator for the IMP²ART Trial, Usher Institute, The University of Asthma
I became a registered nurse in 1991 and since then have worked in acute paediatrics, school nursing, specialist nursing, clinical education and research.
My primary professional interest is to contribute towards improving quality of life and clinical outcomes for children and young people (CYP) with asthma and I am proud to have collaborated with NHS England around the development of the capability framework set out in the CYP Asthma national bundle of care.
As the Clinical Lead for Children and Young People’s Asthma I am responsible for the implementation of the national bundle of asthma care in the Black Country. We have commenced an exciting program of work around Children and Young People’s asthma in the Black Country and our aim is to deliver feasible and sustainable improvements in outcomes for all CYP with asthma.
In my research role I work with general practice teams across the UK to implement the IMP2ART research trial strategy to improve supported self-management of asthma in routine primary care practice.
My other professional activities include membership of the Asthma + Lung UK Council of Healthcare Professionals, writing for publication and professional education. I am the Lead Asthma Tutor for Rotherham Respiratory where I have developed and manage a range of online asthma education modules from introductory to advanced levels.
