Emily is the Lead Placement Facilitator and a Lecturer in Dietetics for the undergraduate BSc Nutrition and Dietetics Programme.
After becoming a Registered Dietitian in 2017, I have worked within the NHS as a Graduate Dietitian in both an acute and community setting. In 2018, I moved into a Specialist Dietitian role in the areas of weight management, bariatric surgery and coeliac disease.
I joined the University of Surrey in my current position in 2020. My role involves module leading all modules related to practice education (placements) for student Dietitians. With a focus on the organisation and implementation of practice education in healthcare settings and developing innovative learning opportunities. I deliver regular practice educator training days for Dietitians and Dietetic Support Workers in clinical practice.
Since 2021 I have been the Time for Dementia Programme lead for Dietetics, developing this integrated initiative as part of practice education and am part of the steering group for Schwartz Rounds.
I have a strong interest in the link between theory to practice, developing role plays and simulation-based learning to support this.
