Olivia's CV

I have chosen to enter a career within health care as I find working with families and people from a broad spectrum of backgrounds fascinating. Helping people in their time of need with compassion and empathy is incredibly important. I am a hardworking, dedicated and enthusiastic person. I hope to use my drive and passion for life to make a positive difference to others and expand my own knowledge and skills in the process. Below is a list of my qualifications and exam results.
Education
Higher Education
• Currently completing a Masters in Leadership and Management at Northumbria University- will be completed in 2020
• Upper Second-Class Honours Degree in Midwifery from Northumbria University (August 2015)
• Diploma in Biology from Stirling University (August 2012)
Other Training/ Experience
• Gaining my Band 6 qualification in Midwifery at the Royal Victoria Infirmary Newcastle Upon Tyne. Working as a rotational midwife I worked in all areas of maternity care; antenatal; intrapartum and postnatal. I have cared for women in labour in the midwifery led unit and cared for women with complex health needs on the obstetric led delivery suite. I have worked with many families and some with complex social histories and been involved with the social services. I have also cared for women who have suffered intrauterine deaths and terminations of pregnancy. I feel this area of care is challenging but incredibly important. I have cared for these women and families with my complete support and empathy, giving them the least traumatic experience possible, creating memory boxes and giving them the mental time, space and support they need whilst caring for all the physical needs. I find the compassion and care you can give to a bereaved family so valuable.
• Building Confidence and Assertiveness Course- February 2018- this course helped me develop my leadership and interpersonal skills, giving me the confidence explore themes and ideas within the NHS and find solutions to problems
• Quality Service Improvement Conference- August 2018- This was discussing the importance of leadership within the trust and implementing innovative ideas to be used by all staff.
• Level 1 Quality Service Improvement on University online course. This introduced me to the methods and templates used to implement change within a service and allow me to create 3 different service improvements within the maternity department which are now being used in the hospital.
• Improving yourself and Others Course- June 2018- This has improved my leadership and management skills and ensuring that I can promote innovation from staff within the organisation and encourage people to make changes whilst enhancing their own skills
• MBRRACE National Conference in Birmingham- attended and presented a poster about my service improvement tool- May 2018- I developed an alert sticker to raise awareness of Twin to Twin transfusion with MCDA pregnancies. I worked with obstetricians, sonographers, midwives and the risk management team to develop a method to increase the awareness around the signs and symptoms of TTTS. This was done due to the increase of intrauterine deaths for our women pregnant with twins. This sticker was designed and created and training for staff took place. Once presented at the MBRRACE National conference, the twin pregnancy society contacted us and have shared the sticker and idea on their website for other trusts to use.
• MEG- Maternity Engagement Group- Member of the MEG focus and task group- 2018- present. I am member of the Northern Maternity Engagement Group. I set up the Maternity Voice Partnership for Newcastle Upon Tyne and we use this forum to share service improvement ideas across the North East and keep up to date with current changes in maternity practice and link in with other service users and maternity units to create the best possible maternity care for women and families.
• Created and set up the Maternity Voice Partnership for Newcastle Upon Tyne- September 2018- present. These groups are being set up across the UK as part of the Better Births initiative. I have set up and created the groups for Newcastle Upon Tyne. The aim of the group is to get feedback from women and families about what is important to them in their maternity care. I then take this feedback back to the hospital and implement service improvement. I decided I wanted to try and hear the voices of women who wouldn’t have the means to complain or express their opinions. I have linked in with 16 different community groups across Newcastle ranging from teenage pregnancy, drug and alcohol groups, the Romanian community, BAME groups and many more. The information collected has already influenced change within the hospital such as new chairs for dads on the postnatal wards, better access to food for mums with babies on SCBU and additional hospital information prior to their labour. There are many other service changes and innovation that has come from this.
• Northern Clinical Network Conference- Smoking Cessation and Alcohol in Pregnancy- November 2018 I have created and will be presenting a poster at the next conference. This will be based on an innovation created and designed by myself to help reduce smoking. Since the maternity smoking task and finish group has been created at the RVI (May 2018), we have managed to reduce smoking by 2% in pregnant women. This has had a direct effect on babies and mother’s health in Newcastle.
• Under took audits and presented them at the Audit meetings for the medical staff- I have performed many audits on things such as the cause of unexplained intrauterine deaths, use of interpreters within health care, clinical documentation, the use of a fetal pillow and satisfaction of staff training. I collected the data and presented it at the audit meeting. The audit around interpreter use led me to create and design and interpretation documentation tool to improve the documenting of the use of interpreters which is now being used in the antenatal clinic at the RVI. This also led to me linking in with the Lead for Diversity and Minorities at the RVI and discuss the problems with interpretation and lack of use within the hospital.
• NHS Digital Conference- February 2019- This area is part of the other main project I have worked on for the last year. The GDE project and plan to go Paperlite within the Trust. I will be attending this conference to understand the complexities of the new MSDS 2.0 national reporting and the importance of data storage, data migration and staff training in terms of technology.
• Transforming Midwifery Perceptions Conference- 2019 This conference was discussing the perceptions of midwifery to the public and the damage it may do to the job. I signed up to be a Midwifery Ambassador to try and change the perception of the role within the public and improve staff morale at work.
• GDE project- Over the last year as Maternity Systems Project Midwife I have been the main link between Cerner and the Maternity department. The GDE Project is the removal of most paper patient records and move to using digital software to write clinical information. The implementation of a brand-new system which will change the way in which people with practice medicine has been a big challenge. I have met much resistance amongst staff and problems which need to be solved. I have embraced this challenge with passion and enthusiasm. It has allowed me to work with many different departments within the hospital such as anaesthetics, out patients, business analysts and critical care staff. I have enjoyed working with such a range of professionals and solving problems and using my leadership and communication skills to ensure that everyone understands the change and feels listened to and supported throughout.
• Attended Project Risk management meetings- For any serious incident or poor out of birth the maternity care is reviewed. This may then lead to a formal investigation to see if care can be improved or if extra support and training is needed for staff. This improved my communication and organisational skills. It is often a very emotional conversation to be had with both staff and parents. This improvement my knowledge around complex maternity care and the legal pathway associated with complaints.
• Attended Clinical Risk Management meeting in both Maternity and the GDE project- these meetings are to identify and rate the scale of ‘risk’ that will occur based on a system change, a new tool or new training for staff. The registers are often updated, and innovative mitigation is needed to reduce the risks.
• Given multiple lectures at the University: Transition from student to midwife lecture. Service Improvement in practice lecture. -This is another example of my communication skills and performance skills. For all I gave a 2-hour lecture for the 3rd and 2nd year midwifery students. The feedback I received was fantastic and gave me such satisfaction that empowering people to become the best healthcare providers they can be is fundamental to the beginning of somebody’s career.
• Performed mock interviews/ information days at Ponteland High School for the Sixth Form Students applying for Nursing and Midwifery. I did this to support my role as a Midwifery Ambassador and encourage both male and female students about the positives of a midwifery occupation and the realities of being a midwife. I discussed the skills such as emotional intelligence, dedication and passion for people that is needed. I also showed them other careers that a midwifery degree can lead to and open doors in the future.
Work Experience
I have worked as a Rotational Midwife, at the Royal Victoria Infirmary since October 2015, during this role I have worked in many different areas within maternity. Such as the postnatal ward for both low and high-risk women and transitional care neonates. These neonates require a high level of care including nasogastric tube feeds, phototherapy treatments and treatments which require taking the neonate to the special care unit for procedures. I have also gained a great deal of experience in high and low risk intrapartum care on delivery suite and the midwifery led birthing unit. During this time, I have undergone training to be able to recover women after theatre and antenatally with acute illness’ and complex midwifery treatment. During my time at the RVI I have also worked in the Maternity Assessment Unit and on the Antenatal ward. These experiences have given me a broad introduction into midwifery care, increasing my knowledge regarding complex care and the management of women with rare and intricate medical conditions.
I currently am the Maternity System Project Midwife for the RVI (started May 2018). I am one of the chairs for the new GDE electronic programme being implemented in the Newcastle Upon Tyne Trust. I have been the main link between the Cerner IT team, trust IT team and the maternity department, leading meetings for the workshops and incorporating current change within the department into the new system. I have worked with sections across the trust such as; safe guarding; anaesthesia and global areas such basic nursing procedures. I must ensure that the workshops are productive even when met with resistance and ensure that the new program will work for the staff and not make their job any harder than it already is. I am also the lead in selecting the super users and aiding in training and the implementation of the new program. I have been involved in the entire process of integrating a complex system into a large organisation. This has been great learning experience to the complexities of project management and the importance of a clear plan to reach a goal and have the facts before creating a plan to ensure it is realistic. I have led Cerner playback demonstrations when the Cerner team haven’t been available and have self-taught myself all the information, I currently know about the Cerner maternity solution.

Interests
I have many interests and an active life outside of my job. I have taken part in Mountain Marathons for fun but to raise money for a muscular dystrophy charity. This improved my communication and team work skills, it also shows dedication to complete and take part in such a challenging event. I also enjoy cooking and often cook new recipes for my friends and family. Another big passion in my life is travelling and seeing new places. During my annual leave, I go on holiday sometimes on my own and explore new cities and cultures and meet people from all around the globe. These experiences of travelling alone show my interpersonal and organisational skills.
