Biography

Gillian is an Associate Professor within the School of Nursing where she leads the postgraduate workforce development provision within the School. She is also the Faculty Lead for Workforce Development and Innovation.

Professionally, Gillian is a Registered Nurse (Adult Nursing) and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She specialised as a neurosciences nurse, worked with the elderly and as a research nurse before moving into education. She has extensive experience of programme leadership, curriculum design, quality assurance and validation processes and has led significant parts of the Faculty's workforce development portfolio, including the high volume Dip/BSc Health Care Practice programme and, currently, the interprofessional, employer-led MSc Healthcare Practice framework.

Gillian's main teaching and research interests are in the area of chronic wound prevention and management and in older person care. She has a particular interest in pressure ulceration and her doctoral thesis, completed in 2009, focused on the predictors of pressure ulceration in elderly orthopaedic in-patients. Gillian was a member of one of the review teams involved in the 2014 review of the international guideline: 'Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Ulcers: Clinical Practice Guideline' (an international collaboration between the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel, European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel and the Pan Pacific Pressure Injury Alliance). She also runs modules in the prevention and management of pressure ulceration.

Gillian is a member of one of the Faculty's systematic review teams and reviews for the Journal of Clinical Nursing.
