Research

PhD and subsequent research has been in the field of childhood obesity prevention, lately on nurses' role in this area in New Zealand, specifically in the Before School check.

A CALT grant was awarded in 2017/2018 and research around teaching clinical reasoning to nursing students was researched and presented at conference in late 2019 and is currently being written for publication.

Communication techniques teaching to nursing students, and the subsequent avoidance of workplace violence is currently being researched in conjunction with colleagues in practice. Preliminary results have been presented at conference and the research continues with a new cohort of students in 2020.

In conjunction with the Canterbury DHB I have taken the lead role in a research group assessing a pressure injury prevention link nurse program carried out in 2019. A paper from this research is currently being written. This has led to an interest in the teaching of quality improvement to nursing students and how this is presented in nursing competencies.
