Tell us about your work
I used to work in the ward, providing direct patient care, and supervising the junior nurses.
Now, my main role lies in nursing research planning. I facilitate and support nurses and nursing students who are doing their honours year projects to conduct nursing-related studies in NUH. I work closely with the Orthopaedics and Surgical disciplines in various projects, including research, evidence-based practice, fall prevention. I am also a resource person for evidence-based information and research. Others come to me when they need to retrieve such information for their work.
I am also part of the nursing education team, where my role includes creating teaching structures, design and develop curriculum, and conducting clinical education. We also have a role in teaching medical students selected skills.
What do you like about your work?
I get to interact and work closely with different groups of people from various departments within NUH and various external organisations like the National University of Singapore, Institute of Mental Health, Joanna-Briggs Institute (Institute of Mental Health) on programmes and projects.
I feel that respect among peers and staff has helped us to trust each other and work in a cohesive manner.
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
To me, happiness is important. Thus, I would want to be able to make all my colleagues happy at their work.
