Research

Research Interests

Pam has participated in a range of small scale research projects and has an interest in evaluative research methodologies and other qualitative methodologies.

Pam has undertaken research into interprofessional training wards, providing assessment feedback, curricula design, awards schemes and teaching excellence.

Pam's PhD study was “An evaluative research study of the process of the assessment of practice for registration as a nurse in one institution”. This involved looking at the process of assessing practice, the assessment tool and the paperwork documenting the assessment. Subjects involved in the study included student nurses, assessors and nurse lecturers. Following completion of the PhD Pam developed an assessment framework that could be used for pre-registration nursing and midwifery to assess practice.

Current Research

Currently Pam is involved in a range of projects which include:

Evaluating aspects of the MA Academic Practice Programme;

Evaluating criteria and assessment of teaching excellence and teaching award schemes;

A review and evaluation of personal tutoring across City University London;

An International Study of Leadership Development in Higher Education (ISLDHE)
project in conjunction with Professor Susannah Quinsee and colleagues in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the United Arab Emirates. See the website
http://www.ucalgary.ca/isldhe/node/10;

Research Grants

2015 - 2016 Pam and Professor Susannah Quinsee jointly were awarded £15,000 for the HEA Strategic Excellence Initiative for Vice Chancellors or Principals.

2011 -2012 Pam explored scholarly and writing activity within the LEaD academic team. SEDA Award £500.

2004 Pam led a group following on from the interprofessional training ward initiative that continued to develop plans for interprofessional learning through different approaches and secured funding from the Strategic Health Authority for a full time facilitator. This amounted to three years salary at senior lecturer level and was £250,000.

In 1997 Pam was able to gain £100.000 funding from the St. Bartholomew’s Trustees to set up an interprofessional training ward for students from five health professions. This was successful and was the first initiative of this kind in the United Kingdom.
