Previously I have deployed technologies, where appropriate, to support enterprise and entrepreneurship academic activities which include a diverse subject area such as Early Detection of Head Injuries & Neurological Conditions, Anticipatory Care Calendar, Children’s Palliative Care & Care of the WellChild, Preceptorship in Practice and Dementia Care, in collaboration with bodies such as the Walton Centre Safety Node, North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Lancashire Care, Advanced Quality Alliance (AQuA), Merseyside & Cheshire Cancer Network and the Department of Health. In addition, and to provide opportunities for students to learn in ways that involve using technologies and online environments, I have also collaborated with Academic colleagues to develop pedagogically sound reusable learning objects to blend with curriculum in Blood Testing, Electrocardiography, Basic Life Support, Communication, Medical Gases, Child Protection, Clinical Supervision and Behaviour Management & English as an Additional Language.
