Collaborations and Projects

Learning and Teaching:

I work part-time for the Centre for Allied Health, St George’s, University of London where I deliver learning and teaching, project work and bespoke commissions including short courses and supervision for health professionals.

Taught programmes

I have led the Advancing Clinical Education and Supervision module (ACES) which is a core module in the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice and Integrated Degree Apprenticeship for Advanced Clinical Practice at St George’s University of London. The module is mapped to the Education Pillar of the Health Education England Multi-professional framework for advanced clinical practice in England (2017).

It’s anticipated that the ACES module will run in the Spring term of 2023.

Guest podcast for SLTeaTime

SLTeaTime is a podcast series opening up discussions around race, ethnicity & lived experiences of Speech and Language Therapists and Speech and Language Therapy Students in the UK from under-represented/misunderstood communities.
In August 2021 I joined a conversation about how SLTs can make the most of supervision and how we can develop our professional identity?

The permeable practitioner is the central idea in my PhD which you can find here . There’s no need to plough through the whole thesis! If you want a summary of the ideas head to chapter 5 and figure 16 on p245. What really matters is how we can use these ideas in practice – and that’s what this website is about

PhD Acknowledgements The idea of the permeable practitioner could not have been developed without the support and encouragement of my PhD supervisors, Professor Annette Boaz  and Professor Deborah Bowman

Completing the final stages of the PhD was made possible with the support in 2019 of a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) PhD Write-Up Stipend awarded from the South London Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care, (CLAHRC) now the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) South London.
