Meet the Team – Louise Rose

Professor Louise Rose, RN, PhD Home Mechanical Ventilation in Partnership (HMViP)

Professor of Critical Care Nursing

Can you introduce yourself?
I am a Professor of Critical Care Nursing and Research Division Head (Applied Technologies in Clinical Care) in the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care at King’s College London.

My main roles are securing grant funding for research, research conduct, and presenting research findings – either at meetings or via publications. I also mentor clinicians at all stages of research.

I am an honorary professor in the Department of Critical Care and the Lane Fox Respiratory Unit at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

What is your interest in HMV?
My clinical background is intensive care with mechanical ventilation as one of my key research interests.

Prior to coming to work at King’s in London I was an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto and conducted a large programme of research with clinical teams across Ontario working with adults and children requiring HMV

When did you join the HMViP?
I was one of the original members when the group was set up in 2019.

What do you personally hope to see the group achieve?
The transition to HMV can be very challenging for patients and families. I’m hoping we will be able to improve patient and family member well-being and quality of life through the development of materials and resources that help ease this transition and break down barriers to a successful transition.
