Diabetes nursing expert awarded education funding

  • Comment

A diabetes specialist practitioner has been awarded a national teaching fellowship – the most prestigious individual award for excellence in teaching in higher education.

Anne Phillips, senior lecturer in diabetes care at York University, is one of 55 higher education staff from institutions across the UK to receive the award from the Higher Education Academy.

“All the awards provide compelling case studies of best practice”

Stephanie Marshall

Each national teaching fellow will receive £5,000 to support their professional development in teaching and learning.

Ms Phillips did her nurse training at St Bartholomews Hospital in London. She later became a district nurse and after that a diabetes specialist nurse in London and Yorkshire.

She has been credited with developing innovative diabetes care programmes designed to produce confident and reflective practitioners.

She has also gained praise for significant contributions to national and international diabetes education policy and guidance.

In 2014 she won the Quality in Care and Diabetes UK award for “outstanding educator in diabetes” and was also part of a team that won a QIC Award for work on children’s diabetes services in 2013.

Ms Phillips said: “It is an honour and privilege to be recognised for teaching and scholarship in this way – I feel very humble indeed.”

She will use the award to continue to develop education and relationships with colleagues working in diabetes care internationally.

Professor Stephanie Marshall, chief executive of the Higher Education Academy, said: “Celebrating great teaching, whether by teams or individuals, is really important.

“All the awards provide compelling case studies of best practice which we can share around the sector,” she added.
