Making a difference through research

Camille Cronin Lecturer in the School of Health and Human Sciences, University of Essex

Professor Jill Maben believes it is vital nurse researchers maintain a clinical career. She explains why to Camille Cronin

JILL MABEN OBE is professor of nursing research at King’s College London (KCL). Until recently she was director of the National Nursing Research Unit (NNRU) at the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery at KCL. In June the unit moved to the Healthcare Organisation Workforce and Quality research group. Professor Maben, who is primarily a qualitative researcher, is recognised for conducting case studies and in-depth, observational research. She examines workforce, the work environment and the impact on patient care. She recently completed a national research study on single rooms in hospitals. She was named as one of Health Service Journal’s ‘Top 100 leaders’ in 2013 and was on HSJ’s first list of ‘Most inspirational women in healthcare’.
