Deborah Clark RN, BSc, NMC

Senior Lecturer


To enhance care quality and patient safety, I am currently concentrating on the integration of Human Factors teaching into undergraduate and post graduate nursing education and am working with several external parties to achieve this. I am have published and presented this work and am involved in several related research projects.  I also have a keen interest in simulation based learning and coordinate a one day acute care course for student nurse's and student doctor's which utilises this teaching methodology. I have published and presented both nationally and internationally on this subject.

  • About

    Here at SHU I am a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing. My clinical nursing experience is in acute and critical care where the core principles of patient safety and quality care are considered fundamental.

    I am currently undertaking a Masters in healthcare education and I am enjoying incorporating new innovation and technology into teaching.
