The school of health and social care created a resource for pre and post qualifying health professionals to develop skills in caring for people who were acutely unwell with suspected COVID-19 it is an open access resource and accessed by over 500 nursing, medical and allied health students.


Ruth registered with the NMC as an adult nurse in 1992, lecturer in 2007 and non-medical prescriber in 2010. She has completed a number of externally funded research projects. One evaluated the national multi-method assessment in non-medical prescribing and informed the future delivery of the programme. Another evaluated the impact of inter professional education (medical students, pharmacy and non-medical prescribing students) on self-efficacy and readiness for inter-professional learning . She has received funding for innovative approaches to learning including development of an interactive Virtual Reality simulation on recognition of the deteriorating patient, which has be adapted for use during the COVID-19 pandemic. These externally funded grants, research and publications have had a positive impact on education and student support in practice locally, nationally and internationally.
