I am a registered general nurse. I have worked in academia since 1992 in a number of institutions around the UK including Sheffield, Aberdeen, Greenwich and Anglia Ruskin. I have maintained my clinical expertise in a number of ways including acting in the role as governor for Medway Foundation Trust, more recently as a vaccinator on the COVID programme for Dorset health and as a member of a number of pensioner forums including Chelsea and Westminster and Lewisham and a steering group member for Positive Ageing in London. I am recognised in the field of Pain and Ageing and was invited to co-chair the Global year against pain in the vulnerable population and chaired the European Year against pain in the vulnerable population. I have recently been awarded a distinguished award for my contribution to the field of pain and ageing by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP). I am a member of the examination board for the European Diploma in Pain Medicine and on the curriculum development team for the European Diploma in Pain Nursing. I have been awarded an honorary Diploma in Pain Medicine in recognition of my contribution. I am an honorary Professor at Abertay University and Sheffield Hallam University.

I am currently recruiting PhD students in the following areas:

Pain and frailty - exploring frailty amongst the older population in the post COVID world.

Dental Pain in Care homes - identifying and managing dental pain in nursing home residents

Self-management of pain using technology with older adults

Opioid use in older adults with chronic pain

Please contact me if you are interested in any of these specific topics or pain and ageing/dementia

Teaching interests

I have taught on a number of programmes including pre-registration nursing, masters level and doctoral level. I developed the first pain course for nurses in the UK which I facilitated whilst working at Sheffield University and I developed the curriculum for the professional doctorate in Sheffield which I facilitated for four years. I have facilitated online research modules for the MA Education and MA Management. I have successfully supervised to completion one professional doctorate student and 6 PhD students in my field of interest and I have examined 18 PhD students across the UK, Australia and Hong Kong.



Research interests

My research falls into two key areas, primarily under the heading of pain. I have been involved in work around pain and dementia which includes dental pain and pain assessment. The latter was a COST collaboration with 27 EU countries which involved the development of a pain assessment tool specifically for adults with dementia. I led on the nursing work group which involved a cross EU survey of nursing practice and implementation of national guidelines. The second area of work included and MRC funded programme in the LLHW agenda on which I was co-lead. This 4 year programme examined the self-management of chronic pain amongst the older population and included surveys, interviews and case studies involving older adults and health care professionals. I also led on the development of a systematic review with a group of older adults which resulted in the development of self management tools and a "how to find self help support" booklet which is being implemented across the UK. On completion of this programme of work I received funding from SBRI to explore the feasibility of using the self-help information incorporated within Chatbot technology. A collaboration with a number of SMEs. Other areas of work include collaboration with UNMASS on their Boston MOBILISE study and collaboration with CORNELL on the use of technology for pain management in the older population. I have collaborations across the UK with Sheffield, Napier, Greenwich and Teesside. I am currently a co-applicant on an HS & DR grant exploring pain and frailty. In total, I have been awarded over £1 3/4 million of research income in the last ten years, I have been an invited plenary speaker in over 100 international conferences including World Pain Conferences, European Pain conferences, International Association for Geriatrics and Gerontology and British Geriatric Society. I have published over 200 papers in peer reviewed journals and 15 books or book chapters including National Guidelines for both the assessment of pain in older adults and the management of pain in older adults.
