Featured Researcher: Nutmeg Hallett
On 8th May at the Graduate School Annual Poster Competition, Nutmeg was awarded a runners-up prize of £75 for her poster entitled “The Prevention of Inpatient Violence and Aggression: Patient and Staff Perceptions”. The Vice Chancellor, Professor Nick Petford, presented her prize.
Nutmeg is undertaking a research project, jointly funded by the University of Northampton and St. Andrew’s Healthcare. Most of her time is spent at St. Andrew’s, where she is part of the research team. The focus of her research is on the prevention of inpatient violence and aggression. This is of particular interest to her, having spent two years working as a mental health nurse in forensic services, where preventing patient aggression was an important part of the role.
