Paul Elliott


Senior Lecturer, Physician Associate Studies


My initial Programme of Professional Education and the initial part of my Nursing career was spent in the Royal Air Force undertaking a variety of duties including Aeromedical Evacuation, Deployment to Field Locations, Airfield Crash Rescue, Management of Medical Centre Wards/Resuscitation Areas, General Practice Nursing, Management of Medical Centre Pharmacy and Burns and Plastic Surgery Nursing. Following retirement from the Royal Air Force in 1985 I undertook some further Professional Education with the Burton-upon-Trent School of Nursing and then spent a number of years within the National Health Service. In 1991 I moved into Higher Education initially with the Buckinghamshire College of Nursing and Midwifery, then in 1996 I was appointed to the European Institute of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Surrey and from there in 2003 I moved to Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) where I spent a number of years within the School of Nursing before taking up my current appointment within the Institute of Medical Sciences as a member of the Physician Associate Academic Team at CCCU.

Academically I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from the Open University, a Master of Arts in Advanced Professional Practice which centred around the Psychology of Infection Prevention and Control from the University of Portsmouth and a Postgraduate Certificate in the Education of Adults from the University of Surrey.

My research interests centre upon the psychological aspects of infection prevention and control and I have a range of publications and conference papers within this area. I am an external reviewer for the Journal of Infection Prevention, the American Journal of Infection Control and the Journal of Nursing Management. In addition, I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. With regards to the facilitation of learning my expertise lies in the areas of Infection Prevention and Control, The Psychosocial Aspects of Health and Wellbeing and, Risk Management.
