Hi! I'm Jason one of the mental health nursing lecturers. Since qualifying as a nurse in 2010 I have worked with people who have dementia 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.
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 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 am currently involved with the THRIVE study, we are hoping to gain an insight into the challenges nurses have faced whilst working in care homes during COVID19 pandemic.
I enjoy running, cycling and paddle boarding and writing short stories for children, the stories are designed to help younger children understand personhood and citizenship in an accessible and hopefully enjoyable format.
