DipHE Nursing Studies, BSc Nursing, MA Health Care Law
Care of older adults with cognitive impairments, dementia, & challenging behaviours.
I am a highly skilled and knowledgeable healthcare professional with a diverse background in nursing, clinical care, and healthcare law. I possess a Master's degree in Health Care Law and a Bachelor's degree in Nursing, complemented by specialised training in mental health nursing. I can offer a comprehensive understanding of healthcare practices and regulations. With extensive experience in patient care, risk assessment, and management, I have developed expertise in providing exceptional care to older adults with cognitive impairments, dementia, and challenging behaviours.
My roles have ranged from Staff Nurse to Ward Manager, involving high-quality patient care, regulatory adherence, and clinical practice advocacy. Each position has allowed me to apply my clinical knowledge, conduct audits, and manage incident investigations within care settings. In my varied nursing roles, I have deepened my clinical expertise in the assessment, prevention, and management of pressure ulcers, fall risks, and malnutrition. My experience in care homes has been instrumental in developing personalised care plans for residents with cognitive and physical needs. I possess a keen ability to create specialised care strategies for older adults with cognitive and functional impairments, ensuring they receive optimal care tailored to their unique needs. Additionally, I have adeptly managed caseloads, supervised nursing staff, and orchestrated care delivery while ensuring strict adherence to the highest standards of clinical practice.
I am particularly adept at-risk assessment and care planning in critical areas such as nutrition, skin care, mobility, and fall prevention. My proficiency has consistently ensured the well-being and safety of patients under my care. Moreover, I excel in clinical leadership and governance, focusing strongly on patient-centered approaches and collaborative care plan development.
I have provided high-quality, patient-centred care while upholding regulatory and organisational standards. I collaborated with residents and staff to develop and implement effective care plans by leveraging my clinical expertise. Additionally, I fostered resident participation in decision-making and facilitated access to essential services and information.
I have consistently demonstrated clinical leadership and a commitment to continuous professional development. I have managed nursing care, patient care, and clinical environments, overseeing teams of healthcare professionals and implementing patient care standards. My proficiency in conducting audits, clinical governance, and patient feedback initiatives has allowed me to enhance the quality of care provided. I am fluent in Shona, as well as English.
I accept instructions from both claimant and defendant solicitors and insurers. I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
