My clinical and teaching practice research activity has underpinned my nursing contribution to include diverse topics from first aid, health and social care provision to resuscitation and end of life care. In 2007 I undertook an audit to determine time to analgesia for those presenting to emergency departments having sustained a fractured neck of femur and was able to expedite treatment for future patients. In 2009 I wrote a synopsis of my experiences of pursuing promotion to emergency sister. In 2015 I was a key educator for Health Education England funded project on recognising and managing acute kidney injury. To conclude my MSc in 2016 I conducted primary research exploring nurse’s attitudes towards those presenting to emergency departments with suicidal thoughts. As a result I aim to devise a teaching package working collaboratively with mental health nursing clinicians to roll out to staff working in relevant areas. Clinical skills/workshop delivery. Devising and delivering simulation using both and low high fidelity methodologies. To promote cross disciplinary simulation based learning opportunities to increase the fidelity of simulated teachings and enhance collaborative working. Along with Jane Priestley recruiting and developing trained simulated patients from our service users to increase the fidelity of simulated scenario based teaching to enrich student education. In partnership with Dr McClelland to chair a research and education simulation collaborative.
