Additional Information:I worked as a self-employed specialist training consultant with the agency RehabPlus during the period 2005 to 2006 delivering one day courses to postgraduate Physiotherapists and Occupational therapists interested and / or working in the field of Oncology and Palliative Care. I developed, wrote and delivered two courses during this period: The Management of Cancer Symptoms and Managing breathlesness in lung cancer patients. The management of cancer symptoms was delivered twice, once in London at the Express by Holiday Inn, North Acton and once in Southampton with twenty plus delegates attending on both occasions. The Managing breathlessness in lung cancer patients was held twice up in London due to the large number of delegates applying for the course and once in Southampton. Positive feedback was received from all the courses delivered. The desire to obtain my postgraduate teaching certificate and to increase my skills in the development, writing and delivery of courses guided me to apply for the Physiotherapy Lecturer post at Bournemouth University in 2006.
