ACNM PAR, ICU, Capital & Coast DHB, Wellington, NZ
I am the CNS of the PAR sevice based at Wellington hospital. I trained, many moons ago, in Coventry, UK. I have worked in many areas from care of the elderly to emergency nursing. I have spent the last 9 years in PAR with the last 5 years as the CNS. I have been involved in the launch of the NZEWS at CCDHB and the continual development of the PAR service. I am passionate about patient safety and the importance of early recognition and rapid response. I have recently been involved in working with consumers to develop a family escalation pathway, Kōrero Mai, at CCDHB. I love working with consumers and feel very privledged that I have been given this opportunity.
