Biography

Jackie Buck joined the University of East Anglia in 2016 as a Lecturer in Adult Nursing.  She qualified with a BSc in Nursing Studies from the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.  Following a varied clinical career that included coronary care and care of the elderly, she completed an MSc in Health Services and Public Health Research at the University of Aberdeen.  

Her research career began in Cambridge at NHS Blood and Transplant in the field of haematology, in particular sickle cell disease, where she examined clinical practice in relation to blood transfusion use. In 2004 she was awarded a nurse research fellowship via Kidney Research UK and completed a PhD at the University of Leicester. Her thesis examined how clinical decision making, patient education and clinician patient relationships had an impact on timely renal replacement therapy. After working as the project coordinator of an initiative that established a national tissue bank for women who were alloimmunised in pregnancy, she returned to post-doctoral research as a Research Associate in of the End of Life Care research group at the Institute of Public Health at Cambridge University.   

Jackie was a founder member of the Cambridge Nurses in Research group and was involved in the development of the Nursing Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals Research Strategy in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. 

At UEA, Jackie is the academic lead for Research and Evidence Based Practice on the MSc in Adult Nursing.
