I am module leader for two modules - one is part of the pre-registration midwifery programmes, and the other is a CPD module for qualified midwives. I am also year lead for first year BSc students.
I am the lead for the Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE) component of the midwifery programmes. This means that I am responsible for ensuring that students receive the appropriate theoretical teaching and practical training to enable them to graduate with the ability to perform the NIPE for newborn babies in their care.
