Programme Committee
I am currently based at Stoke Mandeville Hospital where I lead the Critical Care Outreach team and work across the trust to improve the recognition and response to acute patient deterioration. I have a keen interest in Quality Improvement and took 18 months out of clinical practice to be one of the founding fellows in the Imperial College Healthcare QI Hub. I have been involved in a diverse range of large and small scale change projects across North West London including improving recognition and treatment of sepsis, enhancing patient flow through critical care units and improving patient safety during transfers. I am currently leading work to improve the pathway for patients discharged from ICU and improving use of non-invasive ventilation in Bucks. I sit on the Executive Board of the National Outreach Forum and played a key role in developing recent national nursing competencies for Level 1 and Enhanced Care areas. As an active member of the Intensive Care Society I am a member of the Nurses Advisory Group Education, Education and State of the Art organising committees, where I work to support the society’s strategy of being a truly multi-professional organisation.
