Clare has had over twenty years' experience working as a paramedic and paramedic educator in a variety of clinical settings in the UK. Clare began her career with East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) in 1994 and progressed through the various roles until achieving paramedic registration. Clare was based in Leicestershire, a centrally located area in the UK covering a mixture of urban and rural localities with a diverse population of around one million people.
In 2011, Clare started working at the University of Northampton as a Senior Lecturer and Practice Educator alongside her clinical role at EMAS. She continued to work at the University of Northampton whilst maintaining various clinical roles until migrating to Australia in 2015. As well as working as a frontline paramedic on the ambulances, Clare has also worked as an Emergency Care Practitioner (ECP) at a local Urgent Care Centre and as part of a GP home visiting service. This work involved assessing and creating management plans for low acuity patients presenting with a multitude of minor injuries and / or illnesses within a multidisciplinary environment.
Clare has a Bachelors' Degree with honours in Professional Practice (Emergency Care) from the University of Northampton (UoN), a Post Graduate Certificate in Medical Education (PGCME) from Cardiff University and a Master's of Science (MSc) in Advancing Practice (Emergency Care) from Coventry University. Her main area of interest is sepsis recognition and management and she is a keen advocate of mentoring and preceptorship programmes within the clinical environment and she has initiated and implemented pilot projects in both fields whilst working in the UK.
