I was awarded a personal chair in 2017 and am now a professor in medical education in the School of Medicine with an excellent track record of managing high calibre, evidence based, e-learning and interprofessional level 7 programmes and modules. I am the Director of Post Graduate Taught Studies having one of the largest PGT, health care educational portfolios in the UK.
I have a wide range of experiences leading nationally important projects within the field of pain. Nationally, I have been involved with pain management issues in Wales, working with the Welsh Government to roll out strategies to support Health Boards in pain management. I was a Council Member of the British Pain Society and a committee member of the Chronic Pain Policy Coalition and actively contributed to key documents and national meetings. Internationally, I have published, ran workshops and contributed to meetings as a member of OMERACT, IMMPACT/ACTTION and EULAR.
I have presented at local, national and international conferences on various aspects of pain. I have been heavily involved in the research agenda around pain; supervising research projects and undertaking both investigator led and commercial studies.
