Department:School of Nursing & Midwifery
Stephanie's speciality is Trauma, Neurosciences, and Critical Care Nursing.
Stephanie qualified as a registered nurse in 2003 and worked for 11 years in a renowned University teaching hospital in Cambridge. She worked in critical care for 10 years, nursing patients who had multiple complex conditions. Stephanie was a Sister and a Practice Development Nurse in critical care for five years, specialising in critical care practice education and leading many projects. Planning, organising, and delivering education in practice was the dominant part of my role, which involved developing programmes of study and staff competency packs. She is currently working as a clinical skills tutor and lecturer and has been working at Anglia Ruskin for a year.
Stephanie presented at the British Association of Neuroscience Nursing (BANN) and the British association of Critical Care Nursing (BACCN) conferences.
Stephanie was featured by interview in the BBC 1 documentary Between Life and Death, broadcast in 2011. This was a Ppovocative documentary following the doctors who can now interrupt, and even reverse, the process of death. Filmed over six months in the country's leading brain injury unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, it follows the journey of a man who, by only moving his eyes, is eventually asked if he wants to live or die. Two other families are also plunged into the most ethically difficult decision in modern medicine.
