PD Topic/ Area

An e-Delphi study focussed on how professionals in Sure Start Children’s Centres experience their transition into inter-professional practice.


I have enjoyed working in a wide variety of settings including scientific research establishments, schools, Sure Start programmes and university research centres. This has included around 15 years in research and evaluation posts and around ten years in management. The roles that I have found most rewarding have always involved working alongside family members and front line practitioners improve service delivery.
