SENIOR LECTURER, NURSING
I’m Dr Kath MacDonald. I’m a Senior Lecturer and a registered
Nurse. I worked for many years in the Health Service as a Clinical
Nurse Specialist with young people with a long term condition
and it is this work that has inspired my research.
I completed my Professional
Doctorate last year exploring
the theme of partnership
between young “expert”
patients and health care
providers. As a mature
student I value education and
have extended my research
interests into this area.
I am passionate about the student experience.
My own experiences as a mature learner at Queen
Margaret University through the Masters and
Doctorate programmes have been positive ones
and I want to ensure this continues in both our
undergraduate and post graduate programmes.
My inspiration was predominantly the client group
with whom I worked and a motivation to enhance
service delivery. I was hugely supported by Dr
Shona Cameron my Director of Studies and my
‘My inspiration was
