The Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care (NMPC) is offering an outstanding opportunity for a talented individual who wishes to advance education and research by building excellence and innovative education and/or a programme of cutting edge applied research focussed on supporting the delivery of complex care in and out of hospital, physical assessment, complex decision-making, prescribing and interprofessional working.
The Faculty ranks no 2 in the world for its research and education (QS rankings). The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), rated over 90% of our research as world class or world leading, and 84% of our impact was world leading. Our applied clinical and health research transforms health, quality of life and care across nursing, midwifery, palliative and end of life care, rehabilitation and related clinical, health and social sciences. It includes the Cicely Saunders Institute for Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation, the premier Institute for Palliative Care, bringing together clinical and academic teams. In addition, the Faculty has Research Divisions in Care for Long Term Conditions, Applied Technologies for Clinical Care, and Methodologies, the Nightingale-Saunders Complex Clinical Trials Unit, and Teaching Departments focussed in Adult, Mental Health and Child & Family Nursing and Midwifery. Owing to the agility of our Faculty and King’s we are able to consider applicants who are interested in either an Academic Education Pathway (predominantly teaching with scholarship) or those who wish to apply for a Research and Teaching pathway (teaching and research).
This role responds to the increasing recognition of the key need for person-centred healthcare, involving teams in which nurses play a central role, supporting patients at the key transitions between hospital and community settings, with complex decision making, prescribing, and supporting those important to patients, such as families. The postholder will make an active contribution to our education programmes and research in these aspects. They will be involved and part of the team developing innovative virtual and real time simulation focused on decision-making, complex care and teamwork, requiring advanced skills and the ability to engage with learning experiences from practice.
The appointee will make a substantive contribution to the academic work of the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care and King’s, working with education, research and clinical teams. They will collaborate with existing researchers and educators in the Faculty, across King’s and more widely to apply and explore innovative ways of working with patients, families, and healthcare professionals to improve the quality of health care.
