Juliana is a senior lecturer in adult nursing at Northumbria University, and a scholar of the Florence Nightingale Foundation. Her teaching, research and publications focus on enhancing the care of older people. Recently, she has led local projects funded by Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group to develop a workforce competency framework for Enhanced Care for Older People with Complex Needs (EnCOP). Other recent projects have included leading an international comparison study of the UK, European, and USA approaches to developing nurses to work with older people in nursing homes; and leading a project commissioned by Health Education England to scope and explore the advanced clinical practitioner role in primary care, with a view to making recommendations about maximising the role at scale in the primary care sector. Juliana has co-led the development of a pre-registration nurse integrated health and social care internship - a model which is now being adapted by a number of Trusts and care home providers throughout England. She has also co-led the development of the SUPER initiative, a scheme to promote older people's involvement in pre-registration and CWD health and social care education.
