Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

My teaching interest is in the subject of human physiology with a particular interest in  applied clinical physiology. I teach physiology to both undergraduate and post graduate nursing students in the modules : Structure and Function of the Human body (Part A), Biopsychosocial issues in Clinical Practice and Symptom Management : Nursing interventions.

I also teach clinical skills on the undergraduate nursing programme in the area of Cardiovascular (Promoting Healthy Heart) and motivational interviewing.
