CLAHRC Fellow 2017
Maria initially qualified as a nurse in 1993. She has experience of many different clinical areas and roles in both primary and secondary care. The last 10 years have been in primary care in Cambridgeshire where she currently works as a community matron providing nursing care, support and advice to patients with long term conditions and complex needs. As a Queens Nurse, Maria’s has been recognised as striving to deliver quality care though evidence based clinical practice which led her to undertake an MSc in Clinical Research in 2016. An academic and clinical interest in frailty has led to her project for the CLAHRC Fellowship which will examine how frailty is defined and perceived across different health professional groups.
