About Dianne Ramm
Dianne Ramm is a Senior Lecturer in the College of Social Science.
I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1983 and gained experience in nursing medical patients, orthopaedics and care of the elderly before becoming a community nurse, and subsequently a qualified District Nurse in 1992. My areas of particular interest are leg ulcer management/tissue viability, palliative care and continence promotion. In 2001, I became a Clinical Nurse Specialist-Continence and in 2007, the Countywide Professional Lead for Continence for the provider arm of the local community NHS Trust.
I am a Senior Lecturer, contributing towards the education of Undergraduate Student Nurses at the University of Lincoln. I am also a Personal Tutor, providing academic and pastoral support for a designated group of tutees.
As part of the North Lincolnshire Integrated Practice Support Team (IPST), I provide support and advice for qualified mentors, healthcare teams and for students undertaking their learning experiences in clinical practice.
I am Lead for the multidisciplinary Non-Medical Prescribing Programme, working collaboratively with our practice partners in order to prepare practitioners and support both them and their medical supervisors, as they develop their knowledge and skills. I have taken the lead role in the approval events for the Non-Medical Prescribing Programme/Short Course via the University of Lincoln and the three appropriate governing and regulatory bodies-the NMC, GPhC and HCPC.
