Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

My area of research is age-appropriate developmental supportive care in the newborn infant. This area of neonatal care has expanded over recent years and is seen as a key focus within the recent Scottish Government 5-Year Forward Plan for Maternity and Neonatal Servcies.

Current research activities

I am currently exploring a proposed project with NHS partners, UWS, the Scottish Neonatal Nurses Group and an international expert in the field of developmental supportive care. The project is being supported by Jean Rankin. However we are just in the very early stages of exploring the feasability of the project.

Desired research direction

My desired research direction is definitely in the above area of neonatal care.

Target collaborative companies

A potential company is Caring Essentials Collaborative which is an American company supporting the devleopment of developmental supportive care strategies in the workplace. This company is owned by the international expert that I have spoken about previously who would be involved in the proposed project.

Target collaborative organisations

NHS partners and the Scottish Neonatal Nurses Group would be potential partners in the porposed project above.

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

Other areas would be newborn resuscitation and examination of the newborn. I am currently a recognised trainer with the Scottish Maternity Multiprofessional Disciplinary Programme in these two areas of newborn practice.
