Neil Gopee is a Lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Coventry University, and has until recently also been Associate Lecturer at the Open University. Neil′s role as external examiner at various higher education institutions has further broadened his insights into the two subject areas that he teaches and researchs: first, learning, teaching and assessment in relation to undergraduate and postgraduate students; and, second, management and leadership in healthcare settings.
Neil: I first qualified as a nurse a few decades ago and worked in general surgical nursing for a year before moving on to complete the registered mental health nurse course. Through my nursing career, a combination of clinical experiences in primary care and general intensive care nursing was also supplemented by attendance at numerous professional development short and long courses, including various workshops on writing for publication, and also completing my doctorate in continuing professional education at University of Warwick. My first peer-reviewed article was published in 1991 based on my then nurse tutor role. The 1990s were when nurse education programmes became a part of university provision, which further opened up authoring opportunities, and I negotiated with Alison Poyner, Commissioning Editor at SAGE Publications, to write the Mentoring and Supervision in Healthcare book, the first edition of which was published in 2007. Along the way, I also worked with SAGE Publications to write Leadership and Management in Healthcare (now in its second edition) and Practice Teaching in Healthcare textbooks. I have also had chapters published in edited books and a range of peer-reviewed articles.
