Assessment of the Critically ill Child

University of Sunderland City Campus

This event forms one of a three-part mini lecture series by the University of Sunderland, highlighting current research trends and clinical practice guidance.

Assessment of the Critically ill Child

Speaker: Sheila McQueen, Professor of Nursing and Continuing Professional Development, Registered General Nurse and Registered Sick Children’s Nurse, Registered Nurse Educator.

"My main subjects in teaching are nursing, paediatric emergency and critical care, advanced practice, continuing professional development and practice development. I have worked within nursing for 35 years and was an advanced practitioner and senior nurse in paediatric critical care. I have always been interested in developing practice, service improvement and advanced practice roles in order to ensure high-quality care delivery for patients and families.

The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping students who perhaps don’t feel that academic study is for them. It is very rewarding to guide students to embrace study and help them to see that they can develop themselves as professionals, develop life-long learning skills and very importantly support them to develop practice. All registered health professionals have a duty to continually professionally develop. My philosophy is to meet the needs of service providers and commissioners as well as to ensure a good student experience and to promote a research culture in teaching and learning activity. Creative approaches to teaching and learning should always have a practice focus. My best advice to students is embrace the learning experience and all it offers and accept all guidance and support offered. It will make a difference to you and your practice."

Free and open to all.
