Affiliated Tutor, Diversity in End of Life Care
Ruwaida volunteers in the Day Care Unit at the St John's Hospice where she offers psychological support to patients living with chronic and terminal illnesses. During the pandemic, her role at the hospice extended to undertaking audio biographies with patients who wished for their stories to be heard and recorded as a legacy for their families. She plays an active role in the organisation of fund raising events to ensure that the valuable services offered by this charitable organisation are accessible to those who are most in need.
Ruwaida is the Affiliated Tutor on the Woolf Institute's Diversity in the End of Life Care programme. She is responsible for facilitating virtual training sessions to help healthcare professionals in hospices and care homes support the end of life care needs for patients from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.
She has worked at AGE UK where she focussed on developing memory clinics and seated exercise programmes for elderly patients with Alzheimer's disease. Ruwaida holds a BSc in Psychology from University of Westminster and an MSc in Health Psychology from University College London.
