My current responsibilities are organising, developing and managing the MSc in Advanced Surgical Practice. I am also responsible for assisting with the development / delivery of the MSc in Critical Care, module lead for MSc in Pain Management and Lecturer on various sessional modules e.g. Research, Statistics and Evidence Based Practice as well as marking assessments for the MSc in Wound Healing & Tissue repair. Our team offers a suite of interprofessional MSc courses and stand-alone modules for healthcare professionals delivered entirely on line.
