Desired research direction
I am interested in a couple of areas:-
How can midwives working in busy obstetric units prevent disruption of the "golden hour" following birth?
How can educational institutions improve the OSCE experience for students?
What model of midwifery caseloadholding works well for both women and midwives?
How can we embed the womans expereinces of midwifery care into the BSc and MSc midwifery education programme?
Target collaborative organisations
I would be keen to work with NHS NES, NHS Healthcare Improvement Scotland, Napier University, Robert Gordon University and the Royal Coillege of Midwives.
I would also welcome opportunities to undertake research with Independent Midwives
Current research activities
No current research activity.
I am undertaking a small project listerning to women's stories of their experienceof midwifery care. Information from this project will be shared with student midwives across the BSc and MSc programmes
Area of academic expertise - outline
Limited, although I have a wealth of clinical midwifery knowledge and experience. I also have a strong background of project management and implementing new models of midwifery practice.
