Mrs Sophie Newcombe

Senior Lecturer in simulated learning and clinical skills

About

I am a senior lecturer in the simulated learning and clinical skills team. I co-lead Nursing Practice (part 2), but teach pre-registration student nurses across all years. I am also involved in the teaching of CPD courses and return to practice students.

Previously, I was a senior sister for seven years and worked extensively in EDs, both in the UK and Australia. I developed and led Emergency Department Assistant training in a London trauma centre and also developed and ran a successful Paediatric First Aid and Basic Life Support programme for schools, parents and carers.

More recently I became a teaching fellow (FHEA) and wrote two book chapters. I am also a freelance writer/editor for clinicalskills.net.

I have a passion for emergency care, teaching and patient safety. My clinical interests include inter and intra-professional teaching and learning, recognition and management of the deteriorating patient and simulation.
