Janette has been with the CME since 2004 as a Clinical Skills Facilitator based within the Emergency Care, Clinical and Resuscitation Skills team (ECCARS). She is an integral part of this small team delivering high quality teaching in both clinical skills and resuscitation across all years of the MBChB. Her key responsibilities include leading teaching on professionalism and intimate examination, urinalysis and collection of specimens and infection prevention and control and designing assessment and assessing clinical skills. She has a keen interest in integrating skills to produce a case-based authentic approach to simulated learning.

Practice in simulation is developing and expanding; one of Janette’s key strengths in this field is her ability to foster a safe learning environment within which students can reflect.

She is interested in the socio-educational aspect of learning including buddying and peer assisted learning with undergraduate students. Students build a relationship with their senior peers that will hopefully transfer into clinical practice and lay the foundation for later mentorship. Her MSc dissertation looked at the relationships between Peer Assisted Learning and Communities of Practice and Learning in relation to creating a supportive learning environment in the clinical context.

She is a Personal Tutor to ten students and this is one of her favourite roles

With a BSc in Nursing Studies, Janette has an extensive clinical background including Transplant and Urology working latterly as a Urology Nurse Practitioner within the Western General Hospital.

Her extra-curricular activities include running and yoga which she took up to fit around work and raising a young family.
