Biography

PhD, MSc (Health Care Education), BSc (Hons) Community Health (District Nursing), RGN, BEd, Queen’s Nurse.

Julie undertook her RGN training in 1987 at the North Staffordshire College of Nursing and Midwifery and has since worked across both North Staffordshire and Cheshire, in a variety of roles in both primary and secondary care. Julie's secondary care experience focused on Intensive Care and High Dependency areas and her primary care experience as both a District Nurse and a Discharge Liaison Nurse throughout Stoke-on-Trent. Prior to joining the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Julie worked as a District Nursing Sister for South Stoke Primary Care NHS Trust and represented her colleagues as a Nurse Representative on the Primary Care Trust Executive Board for four years.

Julie was employed at Keele University School of Nursing and Midwifery in 2003, initially as a Clinical Skills Lecturer and then, from 2006, as a Lecturer in the Adult Field. Julie is the Award Lead for the Specialist Community Nursing (District Nursing) BSc and PGDip. In October 2015, Julie took on the role of Director of Postgraduate Programmes. Julie also delivers sessions across all fields of the nurse curriculum and within Continuing Professional Development modules.  Julie has particular interest in community nursing practice; she holds an honorary contract with Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership NHS Trust and regularly accompanies pre-registration students on patient visits whilst they are on placement.

In November 2018, Julie secured the cross faculty role of Dean for Education. Initially this was an interim role but has now been made permanent. Julie will work with the range of Schools across the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, which includes medicine, radiography, social work, physiotherapy, counselling, midwifery, nursing and physician associate programmes. Julie’s role is to support the quality of educational delivery.

Research and scholarship

Julie is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Julie has a particular research interest in primary care nursing, especially patient centered consultations within the clinical environment. Julie completed her MSc research project on the communication needs of cancer patients in the primary care setting and completed her PhD in 2014, exploring the impact of leg ulceration on the quality of life of the patient. Her thesis is entitled ‘A mixed methods study of patient centred care in people with chronic venous leg ulceration’. The research resulted in the development of a new consultation template to guide nurses to explore issues that impact on the patients’ quality of life during consultations. The template is available as a download from: http://www.keele.ac.uk/luct/and has recently been updated using RCN Foundation funding to become the Quality of Life Wound Checklist.

Julie has received a number of awards for her research and was awarded a Queen’s Nurse title in 2013 for her commitment to continually improving practice.

Julie has undertaken a national study across 10 HEIs into the development of assertiveness during the Specialist Practice District Nursing programme, she is involved in educational evaluation in relation to multimorbidity, a number of patient story projects and project evaluation. 

The patient story projects are great teaching resources and are freely available for download:
