Claire Minton MN


School of Nursing

I am a full time lecturer and PhD student in the School of Nursing. I am a  nursing lecturer, with ten years experience, teaching acute nursing theory and advanced nursing skills to the 3rd year students in the Bachelor of Nursing programme. . My previous work experience includes working as a intensive care nurse for 15 years in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.

This PhD study uses a case study method to explore the  perspectives of the patient, their family and healthcare professionals  throughout the patient's prolonged stay in ICU in a number of ICUs in New Zealand.
