She joined the University as a Research Fellow in Postgraduate Medical Education to develop multi-professional palliative care education.  Margaret has been Head of the Nursing & Health Care School since August 2007.

Margaret’s academic role involves leading a dynamic lymphoedema education and team who offer a comprehensive, flexible programme of multi-professional accredited and non-accredited courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Margaret leads the course on Managing Complex Lymphoedema. Her work in lymphoedema education is well recognised as evidenced by a University of Glasgow Teaching Excellence Award in 2007 and an international award for Outstanding Contribution to Lymphoedema Education in 2009 by the International Lymphoedema Framework. Clinical expertise is maintained as a lymphoedema specialist practitioner in Strathcarron Hospice in Forth Valley NHS Health Board Trust.

Lymphoedema research, led by Margaret, is under development within the School and in collaboration with an international research network led. This incorporates educational and clinical research in partnership with the Glasgow Lymphoedema Service, the Glasgow Clinical Research Facility and industry. She is also collaborating with Macmillan Cancer Support on a government supported project to develop a national plan for lymphoedema management and education.

Other activities include membership of the Macmillan Lymphoedema Academy and Casley-Smith International, involving projects to enhance understanding of lymphoedema in health care professionals and the availability and standard of education nationally and internationally.
