Jacqui Peet

Dr Jacqui Peet is a registered nurse who has clinical experience in ICU, OT, CSSD and acute care wards. She has worked in academia for 5 years as a senior research assistant, co-ordinator and sessional for undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Her clinical experience established her doctoral work on developing safety cultures in acute care settings. This work was a collaboration with frontline nurses to explore their significant contribution to patient safety and care experience. It has built an understanding of how patient safety cultures can be supported and enhanced by working with clinicians’ values as they innovate to improve patient assessment on their ward.

Jacqui’s research interests include emancipatory practice development, nursing surveillance, patient assessment and patient deterioration. Her research work draws on qualitative research particularly in the critical paradigm. She explores critical approaches in achieving person-centred cultural change with individuals and teams using skilled facilitation, critical reflection, and action learning. She is a current member of the International Practice Development Collaboration as well as Australian College of Nursing. She has advanced skilled facilitation and practice development expertise. She is an invited external facilitator of the International Practice Development School, Sydney (March 2022).
