Associate Clinical Nurse Manager (ACNM), Canterbury DHB, Christchurch, NZ
Claire is an Associate Clinical Nurse Manager (ACNM) at Christchurch Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. Claire has over two decades of experience in the critical care environment and has faced the extra-ordinary challenge of coordinating the late shift on the March 15 Mosque Terrorist Attack. She felt privileged be a part of the ICU team and looks back with a sense of pride that we delivered exceptional care in exceptional circumstances.
Claire’s strong interests and portfolios include Paediatrics, Spinal and IV Link.
Claire finds Intensive Care both challenging and rewarding and has a strong belief of doing the small things right, as the saying goes “little hinges swing big doors”. Doing the small things right can improve patient outcomes. I endeavour to be an effective communicator and encourage compassion and empathy for our patients.
