Research Output per year
Coming from a Community Nursing background, I am currently based in the Adult BSc Nursing team at Lanarkshire Campus, working predominantly into the pre-registration Programme. My research career began with a PhD study at Glasgow Caledonian University to apply Normalisation Process Thoery to explore and explain the implementation of the CAUTI care bundle from the perspectives of participating NHS Scotland acute sector staff.
This study contributes to the qualitative evidence regarding experiences of macro, meso and micro healthcare professional implementers of the CAUTI care bundle in NHS Scotland. It has revealed the challenges and complexity of implementing CAUTI care bundle into acute clinical practice.
Current research activities
- Investigating and analysing the factors which lead to the successful implementation and embedding of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) care bundles in the acute care setting of NHS Scotland
- Scottish Reduction in Antimicrobial Prescribing (ScRAP) Update 2016 - education and training resource development for management of urinary tract infections
- Systematic Review (joint) on pressure ulcer management in palliative patients
