Biography

I am working with the University of Nottingham Division of Clinical Neuroscience and Stroke on secondment from East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust. This is to support the Stroke Research Team and co-ordinate the UK ambulance Service involvement with the RIGHT-2 trial.

I have experience working both with London Ambulance Service and East Midlands Ambulance Service, and previously split my time between responding as a Paramedic and teaching Paramedic Science Foundation Degree and BSc(Hons) at the University of Hertfordshire.

Teaching Summary

With experience as Senior Lecturer in undergraduate Paramedic education at the University of Hertfordshire, my teaching interests are:

- Anatomy and physiology for emergency and urgent healthcare

- Patient assessment, 12-Lead ECG acquisition and interpretation

- Paramedic skills

- Research methods

Current Research

It is the aim of my mixed methods doctoral study to build knowledge surrounding the initiation, logistics, successes and challenges of implementing the randomised controlled trial, RIGHT-2, within eight UK ambulance services and how this impacts upon the pre-hospital care of stroke patients.

The unique insight gained from coordinating the ambulance service involvement of the Rapid Intervention with GTN in Hypertensive stroke Trial-2 (RIGHT-2) will be used to develop effective strategies when designing, implementing and supporting future research activity within ambulance services.

Past Research

Perceptions and experiences of mentorship during ambulance service education.
