Activities per year
Primarily teach into the third-year undergraduate course with the children’s and young people team. Modules include “evidence-based nursing 3”, “management & leadership” and “decision making for practice”. I am a member of the post-graduate education team in anaesthetics, teaching on the “fundamentals of anaesthetic nursing” and “anaesthetic nursing practice: speciality specific” modules.
I have delivered guest lectures at the post-graduate level, specifically on paediatric intubation to students on the “care of the critically ill child” and the MBRU (Mohammed Bin Rashid University Of Medicine and Health Sciences) “specialist course: care of the critically ill child” modules.
On top of this, I have presented an introduction to CYP surgery to GEMS (graduate entry masters students) “foundations of children’s and young peoples nursing” module. I am also actively involved in the supervision of postgraduate master’s students.
As a member of the children’s and young people’s team, I am proud to be involved in clinical skills training across all cohorts, particularly in inter-professional learning, via SimBaby. I look forward to carrying out SimBaby in the new KN Cheung SK Chin Intersim Centre in September 2021.
I am link lecturer to several clinical areas throughout the South Down/South Armagh region, including Daisy Hill Hospital and Southern Area Hospice Service in Newry. In 2021, I welcomed my first personal tutor class of 30 students to Queen’s University Belfast. I am a member of the QUB Connects and EPAD committees.
In terms of scholarly work, I co-produced the end of semester presentation to the September 2018 Children’s Nursing students as well as co-producing a video interview and three podcasts to celebrate the International Day of the Nurse event held at Queens University Belfast.
I have a keen interest in the care delivery of anaesthetics in children and young people. Having 12 years of experience, caring for both adult and children within a busy rural theatre department, during both emergency and elective ENT, obstetric & gynaecology, general, community oral and dermatology surgery.
In 2018, my focus turned solely on the delivery of anaesthetics to children and young people and was the principal researcher for the Daisy Hill site undertaking the APAGBI (Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland) PEACHY (PErioperAtive CHildhood obesity) study.
