My research interests are in acute and critical care nursing. The main focus of my research is patient outcome and rehabilitation after intensive care. Outcomes include both physical (Health Related Quality of Life) and emotional (Anxiety, Depression and Post-traumatic Stress), and also includes the influence of patients’ reported experience on subsequent emotional outcome. Other research interests include evaluating the Leading Better Care Role Framework, Patient Safety and Patients experiences of care.
