Biography

My career with the NHS began as a care assistant working in a Minor Injuries Unit in 2003. I trained as an adult nurse at the University of Derby from 2005, graduating with an Advanced Diploma in Nursing Studies in 2008. I have worked as a registered nurse within renal and emergency care for Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. I completed a BSc via distance learning with the University of Derby in 2010 funded by the Nottingham University Hospital’s Learning Beyond Registration initiative. I developed an interest in gastrointestinal research whilst working as a research nurse for the Trent Comprehensive Local Research Network within the Nottingham Digestive Diseases Centre. I was awarded a studentship to undertake the NIHR funded Master of Research Methods graduating with a distinction in 2012.

I have particular interests in the psychological aspects of Functional Gastro-Intestinal Disease. During my PhD I hope to design and conduct a pilot Randomised Controlled Trial of nurse delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and co-existing anxiety and depression. My ambition is to build a clinical academic career on improving the quality of patient care with a particular focus on improving outcomes in the psychological aspects of gastrointestinal disease.

Role
Research Fellow / PhD student -NIHR/NUH NHS Trust Translational Research Fellowship
Honorary Paediatric Intensive Care Nurse, Nottingham Children’s Hospital

Biography
I am a registered children’s nurse with experience of providing high quality, family centered, evidence based care within acute settings. Over the past five years I have specialized in the care of critically ill infants, children and young people obtaining a Post Graduate Certificate in Paediatric Critical Care in 2009. I have worked in a number of roles within this setting including staff nurse, junior charge nurse, retrieval nurse and PICU children’s research nurse.
 
However, since qualifying as a registered children’s nurse I have been passionate about clinically relevant research and am committed to pursuing a clinical/academic training pathway. In April 2011 I was awarded a jointly funded National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and NUH NHS Trust Translational Research Fellow/PhD studentship based in the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Physiotherapy. 

Qualifications
RN (Child Branch)
MNursSci (Hons)
PGCert Paediatric Critical Care
Research interests
My principle clinical/research passion encompasses critical illness and the intensive care of infants, children and young people. I am particularly interested in the clinically deteriorating child (health professionals’ assessment & recognition), children’s experiences of critical illness, and the psychosocial impact and outcomes of Paediatric Intensive Care.

My PhD research aims to explore, through a mixed methods, case study design, children’s clinical and psychosocial outcomes and needs following the transition from Paediatric Intensive Care. This research aims to identify the long-term effects of critical illness on the child and suitable interventions and support that is required. There is scope for findings to inform national policy on rehabilitation after critical illness – specifically meeting the multifaceted needs of the surviving child. The Quality of Life and health related outcome measures could inform economic modeling and a comprehensive cost effectiveness evaluation of Paediatric Intensive Care in the UK.  In addition, research findings will identify health choices children and families make after surviving critical illness, which has the potential to inform the public health agenda and application to health, social care and education.

In addition to my own program of research, I am also committed to the integration of research into clinical practice to improve patient care. I am the current chair of Nottingham Children’s Hospital (NUH NHS Trust) Nursing Research and Innovation Forum. This forum aims to engage and empower staff to undertake, implement and disseminate high quality, interdisciplinary research and innovations that promote holistic, family-centered care for infants, children and young people and their carers.

Role
Assistant Director of Nursing, Nursing Development

Biography

After qualifying in 1985 Sue staffed on a medical unit at Nottingham General Hospital before moving to specialise in intensive care nursing. She worked in units at Queens Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital over a period of sixteen years, as a staff nurse, sister, clinical educator and practice development lead. Sue successfully completed the BSc (Hons) in Advanced Professional Practice in 1998. With an interest in education, staff development and support, this became a key focus and she was seconded from intensive care in 2001 as part of the national NHS nursing leadership initiative, to facilitate the RCN Clinical Leadership Programme at Nottingham City Hospital. From there Sue went on to be appointed to an Assistant Director of Nursing post within Nottingham City Hospital working within Nursing Development. In 2006 when the two acute Hospitals merged within Nottingham she became an Assistant Director of Nursing across Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust within the new nursing development team. Within her current role she has specific interest and responsibility for nursing education, practice learning and preceptorship. Other quality initiatives include; Essence of Care benchmarking to improve practice and clinical leadership, with a focus on the development of leadership skills and potential at ward level. Sue has continued to facilitate the RCN Clinical Leadership Programme, over the past 10 years and over 180 Ward Sisters and Charge Nurses have now undertaken this development programme at Nottingham University Hospitals. Sue leads the Trust’s Practice Development Forum and works along side the senior nursing /midwifery team, multi professional colleagues and clinical practitioners to improve patient care and develop new ways of working.

Sue completed an MA in Human Relations in 2009 at the University of Nottingham and is currently studying part time for a Doctorate in Health Science with a focus on talent management (TM) in nursing. This research is utilising a case study approach to explore TM from the perspectives of clinical nurses within an acute NHS Trust and at different levels of an organisational nursing hierarchy. The study aims to gain greater insight in to TM approaches, to ascertain the experiences of nurses and learn from wider industry. The NHS must attract, develop and retain nurses with core values of compassion, the Chief Nursing Officer’s 6Cs, and the skills, knowledge to achieve their full potential as clinical practitioners, researchers, educators and managers of the future, to achieve national healthcare policy priorities. Initial findings are identifying implications for practice and informing future planning for TM in nursing (Haines, 2013).
