Teaching interests

Philosophy for teaching and research could be described as 'student-centred learning for patient-centred care'.  I am interested in how individual student potential can be maximised to best effect and having a Team-Based Learning whole of curriculum approach enhances and developed students.

The areas of teaching that I enjoy the most are concerned with challenging students pre-conceptions and seeing every questions with a black and white answer:

Developing and enhancing professionalism
Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity
Clinical reasoning
Behaviour change
Pedagogical Approaches to Learning and Teaching
Social and Behavioural Pharmacy
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

That said, I enjoy applying these interests to practical problem-solving teaching on most subjects including:

Responding to Symptoms
Medicines Optimisation
Communication and Consultation Skills
Health Promotion and Public Health
Interprofessional Education


The University of Bradfords Education, Innovation Research and Development research groups vision is to put the University of Bradford at the centre of Innovative Pharmacy Education. At the core of this is improving the student experience. 'Student centred learning for patient-centred care'

Projects include: 

Evaluation of the ‘Making Time’ project. A study developed to explore pharmacists working with carers and service users who have learning disabilities. The project offered one-to-one monthly meetings between these parties to help to support service users and their carers with their medicines and health education. 

Development of Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity amongst Healthcare Professionals, academic staff and students to enhance patient-centred care. 

Using the techniques of Motivational Interviewing (MI) to enhance student learning. Developing a portfolio-based approach to encourage continuing professional development (CPD) in undergraduate pharmacy students. 

Using a ‘communities of practice’ approach to coaching and mentoring community pharmacists in developing their CPD. Developing evaluation methods for curriculum review. Developing educational and practice supervisors (DEPS) in the pharmacy workplace. 

Using peer-assessment as a tool to promote student learning and reduce the burden of summative assessment. My current research includes Educational Evaluation of the MPharm programme using Team-Based Learning as a whole of curricula educational intervention. 

Principal supervisor of a Doctoral fellowship student in the UoB’s Dementia Doctoral Training Centre which focuses on transitions in care setting and disease/life stages. 

Co-supervisor of a Doctoral student investigating an invention to improve self-efficacy in diabetes care.
