Sheffield Teaching Hospital

Sheffield, United Kingdom

I have worked as a Nurse within the renal field for 29 years and have clinical experience in all aspects of renal care. I have had a clinical renal education role for the last 20 years working at the Sheffield Teaching hospital in the UK.  Since 2011, I have worked in a speciality role as a Shared Haemodialysis Care Educator and Course leader. I was part of the core team on the ShareHD scaling up programme board, designing and facilitating learning events for the quality improvement collaborative, with 19 UK trusts. My present role involves delivering a 4 day national course for staff working within the haemodialysis setting. The purpose of the course is to introduce, support and provide the tools to change the way in which dialysis care is currently provided. It delivers a range of teaching methods to facilitate a behavioural change encouraging a partnership with patients leading to improved participation and engagement in dialysis tasks and team working.
