My research interests focus on parental emergency department attendance for common childhood illnesses. My expertise lies in predictive work with parents of emergency department attenders and an equitable group using primary and/or urgent care services. Currently, my work surrounds parental decision making to predict parents seeking care at the Emergency Department.
The findings of my work have impact by informing national policy and guidance and also help develop parent-centred services within the emergency care environment.
My methodological expertise includes survey design and administration, case-control studies, multivariate analysis (logistic regression), systematic review and also qualitative interview methods within mixed methods research.
I am a member of the Child, Maternal and Sexual Health Research Group (CMSHRG), Member of the Paediatric Research Society and RCN Emergency Care Association amongst others.
I am a member of the International Advisory Board for the journal International Emergency Nursing and peer review for IEN and Archives of Disease in Childhood in particular.
I am a member of the cross-faculty Children and Childhood Network (CCN) which is supported by the Centre for Advanced Studies, University of Nottingham. Please see http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/children-and-childhood-network/index.aspx

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in my research or in PhD supervision.
For several years I worked in the Paediatric Accident and Emergency Research Group (PAERG) based at University of Nottingham. My doctoral studies identified the determinants of parental emergency care attendance with sick children, supervised by Professor Terence Stephenson.
I have been involved in guideline development for children attending emergency departments as a member of the guideline development committee and research steering committee via my membership of PAERG. See my publications as co-author for emergency care guidelines on children with seizure, diarrheoa and breathing difficulties and related papers.
I have developed a method to assess inter-rater reliability of qualitative interview data collected in children's emergency care which does not affect the richness of the data (published in JAN 2001)
