I have been teaching nursing programmes since 2007 and involved in the development of Bachelor Nursing curriculum in 2008-2010. I currently coordinate the Bachelor Programme in Nursing (Cohort 6) and convene the Law and Ethics for Health Professionals as an external breadth module.
My primary research is concerned with the nursing ethics and its relationship to patient care and professional development. My areas of research interests include the ethical challenges and issues in clinical setting, for example confidentiality, informed consent, patient/familial autonomy and the relationships that nurses establish with clients and family and how these affect patient care.
I also have a long standing interest in nursing values, the experience of patient and family, professional attitudes and behaviors as well as related aspects of nursing practice and education.
I have methodological interest in qualitative research in general, with an emphasis on classical Grounded Theory. I have also engaged in focus group and semi-structured interview research.
