I offer teaching and training opportunities tailored to the needs of your organisation and service. Please contact me to discuss further *
Areas of expertise include service improvement and development, education and training.
Working in healthcare I managed the education and training portfolio for the department I represented. I have written various training programmes for a variety of staff and management to improve the ‘patient experience’ and services for patients and families. Some of the training days included: ‘Supporting patients and families with Bereavement and Loss’ ‘Spiritual healthcare practice’ ‘Cultural Awareness to Improve Access to Services’ and ‘Improving staff awareness of patient’s Faith and Culture’.
- I was also part of the teaching team as part-time lecturer for MA Chaplaincy in Health and Social Care at Leeds Becket University.
- I have presented lectures and delivered workshops for Bradford Bereavement Support, Martin House Hospice, Prescribing Course at University of Bradford ‘School of Health’ and West Yorkshire Cancer Study day for NHS staff.
- I have also facilitated bereavement support groups for patients and families. Trained and managed volunteer groups to provide pastoral support for patients, staff and families.
Additionally, I was the first South Asian Health Improvement Practitioner for South Asian Patient’s with MS in Bradford, where I provided support for patients and families newly diagnosed or living with MS, developed services that were culturally sensitive for MS patients and supported medical staff to improve services for South Asian patients with MS. Similar role was created for Renal Care services on the success of this role.
My work has also branched out to research and development in healthcare and I have been involved in the Born in Bradford research project and contributed to various research studies.
