Nick is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery.
Nick currently lectures in the clinical sciences. He really enjoys this as he gets to see students begin to understand the pathophysiological changes happening to their patients. This is very satisfying as he knows it sets them up so well for their future careers.
Nick started his working career as a Registered Nurse and Midwife, which he enjoyed for many years before becoming interested in emergency medicine, technology and data linkage.
As a research academic at the University of Western Australia, he completed his PhD in the area of pre-hospital care and emergency medicine.
Nick has collaborated and published on many projects including outcomes of nursing home patients transported by ambulance, patients presenting with pulmonary embolism, the use of troponins in the emergency department (ED), nurse led analgesia in the ED, the impact of continuing care teams in the ED on falls in the elderly, frequent ED attenders and many more.
Nick’s current areas of interest are in international health and nursing research in the areas of clinical nursing and workflow. He is currently an investigator on a large multi-centred NHMRC grant looking at the effect of the four hour rule on ED outcomes.
