RIPEN - Re-envisioning Infection Practice Ecologies in Nursing - is a two year AHRC funded programme as part of its Antimicrobial Resistance in the built environment call. Nurses consitute the largest professional healthcare workforce and typically nurses have numerous daily interactions with healthy and ill individuals, family members, community groups and other care professionals. As such nurses have huge potential to make every contact count to reduce inappropriate prescribing and demand for antibiotics, and to enhance the effectiveness of those prescribed. Using a range of arts and humanities approaches this reseach will engage nursing staff to visualize and re-envision nursing practices in relation to the challenges of AMR.
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will support the Principal Investigator (PI) and the Co-Investigator (CI) in the fulfilment of RIPEN project deliverables. Key responsibilities will include:
