Siobhan Parslow-Williams's picture

I been concerned about the climate for as long as I can remember. I was part of friends of the earth at a young age and WWF around the age of 9. I also got awarded a 'Green' Blue Peter badge around this age too.
I started my nursing career in emergency nursing in both surgical and medical. I then went into research and education. My experience in research includes managing clinical trials in secondary care, community care and large scale studies in primary care. I've worked across many specialities including mental health (e.g. Principle Investigator for the GLAD study - NIHR BioResource), Paediatrics (e.g. ARCHIE Study), cancer ( e.g. ESCAPE Study), medical devices (e.g. BEST 3 Study), Stroke (e.g. IPCAS Study) plus CTIMPS (clinical trial of an investigational medicinal product) and Urgent Public Health Research Studies (COVID-19, part of Recovery collaborative group).
My background in education includes teaching pre-registration BSc and MSc nursing students and facilitating NIHR CRN Eastern courses for researchers such as the Valid Informed Consent course plus facilitating and teaching the NIHR Advanced Research in Practice (ARIP) three day intensive residential course.
I feel privileged to be able to combine my passion in environmental sustainability and high quality healthcare in my current role as QI Education Lead at CSH.
I believe including the triple bottom line in Quality Improvement (SusQI) has the potential transform the healthcare system into an environmentally and socially sustainable system; because it not only educates Healthcare professions (HCPs) about the current climate and health crisis but crucially equips HCPs with the necessary skills and tools required to take much needed action.
