Areas of expertise

My key area of interest and expertise is in clinical education.  Over the last 10 years I have expanded my clinical teaching from the realm of speech science into an interprofessional setting with a keen focus on interprofessional education.  In addition to this, I have a lot of clinical experience and skill working in the area of adult neuro rehabilitation, in particular Parkinson's disease.  My current research focuses are in; clinical/professional supervision, clinical education, interprofessional education and client-centred healthcare/education models.
