Expert gives talk on skin care research

BU Professor Steven Ersser The next BU Inaugural Lecture will be delivered by Professor of Nursing Development & Skin Care Research Steven Ersser.

Professor Steven Ersser, leading international dermatology nursing expert at BU, will deliver his Inaugural Lecture at Talbot Campus on Wednesday 6 May.

Professor Ersser will reflect on his key involvement in the academic development in the fields of skin care, dermatology and nursing development.

The lecture will argue the importance of skin/ dermatological care to nursing and health care, and the necessity to develop and test complex nursing interventions and delivery models to address skin care needs that are unmet or poorly met.

Drawing on his work as the Chair of the International Skin Care Nursing Group Advisory Board, Professor Ersser will highlight the parallel efforts to build an infrastructure for research and development in the UK and USA.

Professor Ersser said: “Historically, skin care has remained a fundamental feature of nursing practice but continues to be a neglected field of nursing scholarship.

“This lecture will argue for dermatology to embrace a wider research agenda, explore new avenues for health promotion in chronic illness and identify ways to develop and evaluate interventions to enhance wellbeing and quality of life.”

Steven Ersser is Professor of Nursing Development & Skin Care Research, based in BU’s School of Health & Social Care.

He holds the Established Chair in health-related research and is Director of BU’s University-wide Centre for Wellbeing & Quality of Life.

The lecture will be delivered in the Shelley Lecture Theatre on BU’s Talbot Campus at 6pm. Pre-lecture refreshments (from 5.15pm) and admission to the lecture are both free of charge.

Where: Shelley Lecture Theatre, Talbot Campus, Bournemouth University.
When: Wednesday 16 May 2009, 6pm.
