She was a founding member of the Cochrane Collaboration and has been Coordinating Editor of the Cochrane Wounds Group since 1995. Research-wise Nicky is a health services researcher who applies epidemiological approaches to studying nursing questions, particularly in wound care. She has led large randomised trials, cohort studies, mixed methods studies as well as evidence synthesis. She was appointed Professor of Nursing in the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work at the University of Manchester in September 2011 and made Head of the School (now Division) in August 2015.
