Brief CV

Clare is a Clinical Academic Tissue Viability Nurse at Leeds Teaching Hospitals, with 15 years experience in the field of Tissue Viability. Clare’s interest is in evidence based practice in wound care, pressure ulcer prevention, surgical wounds and the management of leg ulcers in acute care services.

Clare completed her doctorate in 2020, and also has an MSc in Nursing and a PGCert in Tissue Viability. Her PhD research focused on the use devices for the prevention of heel pressure ulcers, which she has presented at national and international conferences, and has informed a successful NIHR HTA Grant “WHiTEPRESSURE 3”. This is a multi-centred three arm RCT comparing offloading devices, heel cushioning pads and standard care for the prevention of heel pressure ulcers in hip fracture patients. Clare has also received funding from NW R&D as part of the post-doctorate bridging scheme to support the development of her application for an NIHR ACAF. Her current research interest is in the management of pretibial injuries. Clare is also an associate editor for the Society’s journal – The Journal of Tissue Viability.

Clare is a trustee for the Society of Tissue Viability, and would love to be re-elected to continue her work with the Society on national education projects, organisation of their annual conference and collaborating with the Wounds Research Network (WReN), and representing SoTV on the Legs Matter Campaign.
