I have worked in the community for 18 years as a health care assistant, district nurse, and tissue viability specialist nurse. As a tissue viability nurse specialist, I have enhanced wound care management and treatment skills working clinically for over 18 years in the NHS. My work has led me to work as a specialist advisor for tissue viability to the CQC and as a legal expert witness.
I started researching the prevention of pressure ulcers in the community and long-term care settings in 2012 as part of my dissertation research for my specialist tissue viability degree.
I have worked intensively within the community and nursing homes, working closely with multi-disciplinary agencies, local authorities, CCGs, and care providers.
I have dedicated my work to raising awareness of pressure ulcer prevention and influencing change of cultures in practice in the community and long-term care settings across all nursing and non-medical disciplines. My work has made me proficient in quality improvement methodologies, and sustainable implantation, benchmarked to CQUINS and KPIs.
I have published my work and have won the prestigious quality improvement award by the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP). In June 2017, I was nominated to attend a Royal Garden Party by the Director of Nursing at NHS Improvement in recognition of my work in the nursing profession.
I am passionate about bringing my knowledge and training to care settings to empower carers to become prevention champions. I have implemented various quality improvement and sustainability plan models and joint commissioning improvement business plans for joint local authority and NHS trust organisations to incorporate the 5-year forward, STPs, and 10-year plan. This involved working closely with care homes and domiciliary care home providers and CCGs.
I have worked with Imperial College London Academic and Science Health Partners (ASHN) where I redesigned and launched the gold standard SSKIN bundle for use in long term care settings. I helped design and launch the pressure ulcer safeguarding decision tool which is now used nationally as part of the Department of Health serious incident policy. I have designed and written multiple preventions of pressure ulcer internationally.
For the last 2 years, I have been travelling the UK and delivering QI operational consultancy and clinical training.
