Dr Doreen Molloy
- Senior Lecturer (Nursing & Health Care)
I am a Lecturer in the Nursing and Health Care School and hold the roles of Deputy Head of School and Programme Director Bachelor of Nursing (Honours). I am a member of the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team.
I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1990 after studying at the Western College of Nursing in Glasgow. I held various staff nurse posts in the Western Infirmary before taking the post of Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist at Inverclyde Royal Hospital. My first teaching post was as a Lecturer in Cancer and Palliative Care with Marie Curie Cancer Care. I then spent three years working in Australia both clinically in the hospital setting and academically as a lecturer at Edith Cowan University. On return to the UK, I worked as a Care Home Education Facilitator then as Lecturer in Adult Health at the University of the West of Scotland. I started my current post at Glasgow in September 2015.
My clinical nursing career was mainly in cancer nursing and I have a particular interest in Breast Cancer Care. I developed the first nurse-led Family History Clinic to be held in a District General Hospital in Scotland. My doctoral studies explored why women who carry BRCA mutations which confer a high risk of developing breast/ovarian cancer decide not to have risk reducing surgery. I also have a BA in Social Science, an MSc by Research (Med Sci), and a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. I am a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy, a peer-reviewer for the journals Cancer Nursing Practice and Nursing Standard.
