Key Research Interests and Expertise

I am very interested in research related to health. As a researcher, I have undertaken several small scale studies as part of academic awards including a quantitative approach to study the nutritional assessment of hospital patients receiving Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN). I have used qualitative methods to study the impact of lecturers’ clinical credibility in relation to student learning and phenomenological approaches to explore the lived experience of novice intensive care nurses. My PhD thesis focused on the factors that contribute to success in pre-registration nurse education using multiple qualitative case studies as presented at the 13th European Doctoral Conference in Nursing Science, Austria.
