CCNAP Education Committee Member 2012-2014

Alison Ketchell

Dear Colleagues,

My name is Alison Ketchell, I qualified as a nurse in London in 1984 and spent the majority of my clinical experience working in cardiac care.

I worked in cardiothoracic surgery for approximately 2 years and then 6 years as a staff nurse and then senior ward manager of a busy coronary care and cardiology unit in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Learning and Teaching Lead

In 1994, I moved in to teaching and am currently a lecturer in the School Of Healthcare, University of Leeds. My main area of expertise is acute cardiac care which I teach at pre registration and post graduate level with a particular emphasis upon electrophysiological disorders and ECG interpretation.

I  am also involved in cross School curriculum development and quality assurance activities as part of my role as a Learning and Teaching Lead and I am therefore interested in the integration of cardiovascular education within our nursing programmes.

It is this area of activity which led me to apply for membership on the Education Committee for CCNAP where I hope to be able to share ideas and good practice with colleagues with similar interests.
