During this seminar Joseph will share how his clinical insights as a critical care nurse have driven a programme of clinically impactful research committed to optimising the outcomes of children and their families following critical illness.  Joseph will present a number of studies as part of this programme, that employ a range of methodologies and methods, that have advanced the understanding of childhood critical illness survivorship within the field of paediatric critical care medicine.  Inter woven, he will narrate his journey as an alumnus of the University of Nottingham [MNursSci 2005; PhD 2015] and as a clinical academic children’s nurse.
