She became an Oxford AHSN Fellow on the Evidence Based Healthcare Masters programme in 2015.
She said: “At the end of the first year of the MSc I feel that I have learnt so much already that I can put into practice.
“The taught modules so far have helped me to have a better understanding of the research being done and to be able to have open and honest discussions with my patients and colleagues.
“My dissertation project is a cohort study looking at patient data sets that come to my clinic for ketamine treatment for treatment resistant depression.
“Before starting my MSc I would never have thought to take on such a project as it is very heavily statistics based and as a nurse my experience has been with qualitative research rather than quantitative. However, through what I have learnt from my modules this year and hopefully through my statistics module next year and the support of the university team and the AHSN I feel confident that I can do this.”
