Professor Sara Bayes - Nat Sch of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine (Faculty of Health Sciences)
Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor
I am a midwife academic committed to furthering our understanding of some of the 'wicked problems' faced by midwives and maternity services and to develop effective solutions to them.
I have expertise in qualitative research: Grounded Theory Methodology (especially Glaserian), Interpretive Descriptive Methodology, Narrative Inquiry, Participatory Action Research, and in implementation science / co-constructed organisational change.
My focus is on improving maternity care quality, optimising consumers' maternity care experience, optimising midwives' employability/job satisfaction/intention to stay in the profession, and finding and implementing effective ways to narrow the second translation gap in midwifery and maternity care.
