Prior to returning back to academia in my role as senior lecturer and Physiotherapy development lead, I had been a senior lecture at YSJ from 2004 – 2015 . In that time I was involved in development, delivery and assessment of physiotherapy programmes, and as a senior lecturer had a responsibility to ensure that the programmes I was involved in delivered a quality experience for students and that once qualified, graduates would be competent, reflective, critical thinking practitioners demonstrating leadership and decision making skills.
My personal interest revolves around Advanced Physiotherapy Practice in an MSK setting. Particular Interest focuses on the use of corticosteroid soft tissue Injections
