He also has develped expertise in family engagement practices that influence patient progression beyond their Intensive Care Unit stay.

Approach to teaching

As an accredited educator, my primary teaching responsibilities include the specialist training of Intensive Care nurses who undertake their specialty training and lead the disseration module for the BSc Professional and Clinical Practice. I have developed skills using a variety of teaching approaches in a mostly collaborative way such as scenario-based learning, critical appraisal, and beyond utilising e-learning techniques to involve students in a multitude of different didactic approaches.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, I have returned to the clinical side predominantly teaching non-ICU nurses the skills required to safely look after this complex patient cohort. I also have been heavily involved in an international training program upskilling clinical staff for redepolyment within Intensive Care areas.
