Delirium Assessment and the Role of the Multidisciplinary Team: Claire Pryor, Associate Professor of Nursing, Claire Pryor, Associate Professor of Nursing, Northumbria University

Claire’s interest and love of healthcare started at a young age as a cadet in St John Ambulance. As a teenager she developed her first aid skills, alongside leadership and advocacy. Claire often could be found at local football stadiums and music events providing first aid cover.

Whilst studying for her nursing degree, Claire worked as a nursing assistant in a local care home. Claire enjoyed providing care and support for people across the life span.

Upon graduation, Claire worked for 4.5 years in an acute medical assessment unit before moving to critical care. Following this, Claire took a Band 6 position in intermediate care, providing nursing care and support for people in their own home. This included hospital avoidance, discharge support and advanced clinical skill provision. Cross covering the out of hours district nursing and palliative care services expanded on Claire’s knowledge and skills, whilst refining her focus on the complexity of older peoples care and multimorbidity and frailty.

Claire’s last clinical position was as an older peoples specialist nurse/advanced nurse practitioner providing cover and support for organic and functional mental health services. In this role, Claire explored parity of esteem between physical and mental health and advancing service provision. Here, Claire commenced her Doctoral research into the mental health nurses experience of providing care for people with delirium superimposed on dementia (DSD).

Following her transition to full time academic work at Northumbria University, Dr Claire Pryor is now an assistant professor in the department of Nursing Midwifery and Health. Claire’s research and educational interests span frailty, anatomy and physiology of ageing and allied advancing nursing and healthcare education. Claire is subject specialist for non-medical prescribing, and module lead for frailty. Claire also holds external examiner positions in two University’s for frailty and non-medical prescribing provision.
