A registered mental health nurse since 1986, Jacquie studied the role of the mental health nurse in medication management for her first degree and conducted a programme of research into nurse-led physical health checks in secondary mental health services for her PhD.
This work implemented the Health Improvement Profile (HIP), a tool she co-designed for mental health nurses that is now used across the world.
Developing practice that has an impact on the mental health and wellbeing of adults and young people remains the focus of her teaching, research, knowledge exchange and scholarship activity. Jacquie has worked in a variety of roles at the University including Associate Dean Education (2015-2020), Mental Health Strategy Lead (2020-2023) and Head of School (Nursing and Midwifery) (from 2023).
