MSc Sports and Exercise Medicine and MSc Applied Sports and Exercise Medicine
Commencing August 2019, I now teach on the MSc Sports and Exercise Medicine and MSc Applied Sports and Exercise Medicine courses. I am also convenor for the ‘Research Methods’, ‘Physical Activity Epidemiology’, ‘Qualitative Methodology and Analysis’, and ‘Project and Dissertation: Sports and Exercise Medicine’ modules.
BMedSci PPI Module
September 2018 saw the launch of a new Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) module for BMedSci students.
This optional module introduces second-year medical students to Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) across the research life cycle, its importance in good research and the benefits gained from a patient perspective. The module was co-produced and co-delivered by staff from the School of Medicine, NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), and members of the public, all part of the East Midlands Sharebank network.
Alongside the diverse team of academics and patient representatives, I contributed to the development of new syllabus. Collaborating with PPI reps Michael and Julie we co-produced and delivered a workshop for the module on ‘Considerations for delivering meaningful research’.
We presenting our experiences in co-producing and co-delivering the module at this year’s UKCRF Annual Conference in Nottingham and will be delivering the module again in Autumn 2019.
