Biography

After completing his nurse training, Sharon continued to develop his professional practice in a variety of community based care environments. The Post Graduate qualifications in IT were critical for his first clinical informatics role of a Project Nurse in Perth and Kinross NHS Trust.

In 1999 Sharon moved to be based at the University of Abertay, in Dundee, where he was teaching and working on his research thesis on remote healthcare provision for older adults.

Sharon joined the Royal College of Nursing in 2002 as the UK informatics adviser - a post he held until 2007. After a short career break abroad, Sharon re-joined the NHS as a Telehealth Nurse Specialist, a post he held until 2012.

Sharon is currently a Programme coordinator for the MSc in Global eHealth. His main research interests and activities focus on digital nursing. He actively supports research and development efforts by Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland and run a regular virtual clinic for service users.
