Consultant Midwife Public Health
University College London Hospital NHS Trust
Yana undertook general nurse training prior to becoming a midwife in 1988 and her interest in clinical guidelines began in 1996 when she completed a Masters degree which was a qualitative study looking at the use of evidence in clinical practice. She commenced her current post in 2004; previously she worked as a research fellow for the Royal College of Nurses looking at implementation of clinical guidelines. Yana has been a midwifery member of two NICE clinical guideline development groups, and has been involved in international guideline development; she is committed to the implementation of clinical guidelines in practice and holds the firm belief that they will reduce inequalities in care for both mothers and babies.
During her time as a NICE fellow she will focus on guidelines relevant to maternity services and the implementation of NICE guidance into clinical practice. She will work collaboratively with the Royal College of Midwives, and obstetric colleagues to produce a short compilation of NICE guidance relating to maternity services which can be used in the clinical area. She would also like to work with students at a local and national level to ensure that evidence is embedded into clinical practice.
