Lisa Whiting

Lisa Whiting is Principal Lecturer and Professional Lead, Children’s Nursing at the University of Hertfordshire. Prior to her academic career, she gained a range of paediatric nursing clinical experience, specialising in children's critical care nursing. Since moving to an academic environment, Lisa has developed and nurtured her interest in child health promotion. She now leads the team of children's nursing lecturers at the University of Hertfordshire.

Lisa has recently completed a part-time Doctorate in Health Research [DHRes] at the University of Hertfordshire; the focus of her study being the use of asset mapping, and the lens of ‘Activities that I Enjoy’, to gain an insight into children’s wellbeing. The participants in the research were between 9-11 years of age; Lisa used a photo-elicitation approach to explore the activities that they enjoyed participating in, the aim being to reveal an insight into their wellbeing.

Lisa has published a number of papers relating to both child health and research.
