Tiffany is a Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing and teaches on both pre and post registration nursing courses. She has gained over 10 years of experiences in acute mental health settings working as a mental health practitioner, student mentor and a nurse educator. She has developed a particular interest in the area of violence reduction in health care and worked as a specialist in this area before joining the team at UCLan in 2015.
After spending a number of years working in healthcare as a support worker in elderly, neurological disorder and acquired brain injury settings, Tiffany attended the University of Central Lancashire to complete a Diploma in Mental Health Nursing. On registration, she primarily worked in acute inpatient settings as a nurse and then team leader working with a variety of service users with complex mental health needs including ABI, substance misuse, learning disability and challenging behaviour.
During that time, Tiffany became a student nurse mentor and gained a Post-Graduate Certificate Teaching Effective Aggression Management at UCLan and became a part time TEAM instructor within her NHS Trust in addition to her nursing duties. In 2010, she became a Nurse Specialist in Violence Reduction and attended the University of Glamorgan to achieve a BSc in Profession Practice: Violence Reduction. This Specialist role included education, leadership, complex case consultancy, policy/service development and serious incident review responsibilities across a range of mental health settings.
Tiffany has developed a particular interest in violence reduction, reducing restrictive practices and personality disorder and as such she is currently completing an MSc in Personality Disorder with a focus on effects of trauma on individuals. This is due to be completed in 2018.
