Personal profile

Academic Background

I'm Jason one of the lecturers at the UEA and course director for the MSc in Mental Health Nursing. Since qualifying as a nurse in 2010 I have worked with older people living with various mental health presentations across a variety of settings; inpatient care, memory assessment in primary, secondary and acute care, mental health liaison in an acute general hospital and as a community mental health nurse. I am clinically active and work as a bank nurse on inpatient wards supporting people who have dementia, I also undertake private consultancy for complex Mental Capacity Assessments.

Throughout my time within clinical practice I was lucky enough to receive awards from the 'Applied Research Collaborations' (formerly CLAHRC). These awards enabled me to complete an MSc in Clinical Research where I undertook a systematic review of post diagnostic counselling in memory services. Following this fellowship, I was awarded a doctoral fellowship by the National Institute of Health Research. My study explored the feasibility of delivering a brief reflective personhood and citizenship workshop to care home staff, in particular exploring the acceptability of the observational measure Dementia Care Mapping. I have also worked with  the THRIVE research group, we investigated the challenges nurses faced whilst working in care homes during COVID19 pandemic.  

I lead on clinical skills within the nursing school, and enjoy creating simulations in which students can safely explore the more complex issues relating to their nursing practice. 

I enjoy running, cycling, swimming and paddle boarding and of course spending time with family and friends.
