Naval and Military Nursing in the British Empire c. 1763-1830

My doctoral work on naval and military nursing in the British empire c. 1763-1830 focuses on five dimensions of nursing care, the military/naval medical system, and the relationship between nurses, nursing, and the state.  This work helps to dispel the image of the pre-Nightingale nurse as a drunken caricature.  Find out more here.

A System of Care and Control: British Naval Medicine 1790-1815 

Funded by Associated Medical Services (AMS) this one-year project will consider the cyclical nature of care provision.  Conceiving of naval medical as a system of care allows for equal weight to be given to each stage of medical care delivery, re-integrating hospital ships, hospitals, and convalescent ships into the naval medicine narrative.
