The NRPDU Research Team

> Professor Val Wilson, NRPDU Director, email:

Val works to promote change in the way patients are treated in hospital by studying the theory and development of practice development for nurses. Her research and development programs involve parents in giving medication, and using ‘heart-beads’ as a way of helping families with sick children deal with unpleasant procedures. Val’s aim is to involve all stakeholders in improving care – from nurses to parents and children.
