Role

Nicky is Professor of Nursing in the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work where she is Head of School and leads the Wounds Research Group.

Nicky also holds the title of Professor in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Griffith University, Queensland; Honorary Visiting Professor, Department of Health Sciences, University of York and Honorary Professor, University of Queensland.

Research

Most of Nicky’s research is in wound care where her goal is to work with patients and clinicians to answer important questions about the causes of wounds and effective treatments and ultimately to enhance health outcomes. In the past Nicky’s work has mainly been in the area of chronic wounds such as pressure ulcers and leg ulcers however acute wounds are increasingly a focus of her work (e.g., surgical wounds healing by secondary intention). Nicky is currently Theme Lead for Community Services in the Greater Manchester CLAHRC (funded by NIHR). 

Nicky’s research group has undertaken several large NIHR HTA funded trials (VenUS I, II, III, IV and PRESSURE) which have shown, in terms of leg ulcer healing, that the four layer compression bandage is more effective than the short stretch bandage, that medicinal larval therapy is no more effective than standard care, that ultrasound therapy confers no therapeutic advantage. VenUS IV found that compression hosiery was a cost-effective treatment for venous leg ulcers relative to 4-layer compression bandages.

The PRESSURE Trial established that alternating pressure mattresses are more cost-effective than (cheaper) alternating pressure overlays.  Current research includes study of surgical wounds that break down – a common but under-researched phenomenon.

Nicky was a founding member of the Cochrane Collaboration and is Coordinating Editor of the Cochrane Wounds Group; a collaboration that has published more than 100 systematic reviews in wound care to date (some of the most highly accessed reviews of the Cochrane Library). 

Methodological Knowledge

Nicky applies epidemiological research methods, including the use of randomised controlled trial designs and systematic reviews, to better understand complex wounds, their causes and how to prevent and treat them.

She collaborates closely with health economists to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of interventions and the expected value of future research.

Biography

Nicky was appointed Professor of Nursing in the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work in September 2011, where she leads the Wounds Research Group. She is Head of School.

Nicky Cullum trained as a nurse in Liverpool, UK and was awarded a PhD in pharmacology from the University of Liverpool in 1990. She gained postdoctoral research experience at the University of Surrey, UK, in the Department of Health-funded Nursing Practice Research Unit, and the Department of Nursing at the University of Liverpool. Nicky was at the University of York between 1994 and 2011 where worked in the Centre for Health Economics (1994 – 1996) and then the Department of Health Sciences (where she was Head of Research 2007 – 2011).

Nicky also holds the title of Professor in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Griffith University, Queensland where she collaborates on the NHMRC-funded Centre for Research Excellence in Nursing Interventions for Hospitalised Patients (NCREN). She is also an Honorary Professor at the University of Queensland.

Nicky was made a Dame for services to nursing research and wound care, in the Queen's Birthday Honours, 2013. She was an Inaugural NIHR Senior Investigator (2008 – 2012, renewed 2013) and was made a Fellow of both the Academy of Medical Sciences and the American Academy of Nursing  in 2012. She was awarded the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Achievement Award for contributions to evidence based medicine in 2006.

Nicky has served on many funding panels including the NIHR Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Commissioning Board (2003 – 2008) and the Medical Research Council Health Services and Public Health Board (2003 – 2007). She is currently a member of the NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research Panels.

Nicky was also a founding member of the Cochrane Collaboration; Coordinating Editor of the Cochrane Wounds Group since 1995, she served on the Coordinating Editors’ Executive (2004 – 2009) and again since 2014.
