Liz became a midwife after a career in nursing. Her critical care background and subsequent specialisation in simulation has enabled her creative and innovative sides to come out to play with her teaching, curriculum design and scholarship/research areas in both the nursing and midwifery areas.
Liz teaches across the curriculums, including topics in the sciences, clinical skills, and research areas. Her focus areas include midwifery research, authentic and programmatic assessment, professional communication, and simulation and has presented internationally in these areas. Liz created and convened the CNHS teaching specialist community of practice to support, encourage and promote innovations in teaching and assessment. She is also a primary promoter of student engagement and student partnership as well as midwifery research via her podcast Thru the pinard.
Liz is also very interested in serving/veteran female birthing/post-natal experiences, veterans/1st responders living with PTSD and diverse gender, sexes and sexuality inclusivity (GDSS) issues in health care and university students/staff.
