Professor Roger Watson, director of research at the University’s School of Nursing and Midwifery, is one of the first three nurse leaders from outside the US to be inducted into the academy.
Professor Watson is best known for the development of the Edinburgh Feeding Evaluation in Dementia scale which is now used in several countries, including the US and Taiwan. His research interests are wide and he has also researched the areas of caring in nursing and work and study-related stress in nurses and nursing students. He is well published in refereed journals and has several textbooks on science in nursing, accountability and research methods.
Anne Peat, Dean of the School of Nursing and Midwifery, said: This is a fantastic achievement and is worthwhile recognition of Professor Watson’s hard-work and determination and we are delighted that he is part of the Sheffield team.
