With a background of over 20 years in healthcare practice, Hazel has been involved in the education of integrated healthcare practitioners since 1999. These two interests combined in her doctoral thesis: ‘Post-qualification education and professional identity in the contested landscape of Complementary and Alternative Medicine: a case of transformative learning in an online setting’.

Hazel has a background of over 20 years in health care practice and has also provided education consultancy for Integrated Healthcare practitioners’ registering organisations. Her interest in practitioner development and education inspired Hazel’s research for her Professional Doctorate exploring professional identity and the potential of online learning to foster transformative learning experiences.
