Miss Alice Pearsons

   

Biography

Qualifying in 2015, Alice has worked as a nurse across a range of acute clinical environments, primarily cardiology and emergency care. Alice later completed an MSc in Human Anatomy at Edinburgh University where she developed a strong interest in research and began to pursue a career in nursing research.

In Sept 2019, Alice joined Edinburgh Napier University as a research assistant working on a three year feasibility randomised controlled trial which involves co-designing a mobile app to increase medication adherence in atrial fibrillation. Whilst working with the team Alice has worked on multiple projects within atrial fibrillation and physical activity.

Alice is currently undertaking her PhD part time exploring integrated atrial fibrillation approaches to service delivery within Scotland. This will include a realist review looking at what, how and for whom an integrated atrial fibrillation approach will work.
