Dr Jacquie Kidd



He mihinui mahana ki a koe. No Nga Puhi ahau. Ko Ngati Hineira raua ko Te Uri Taniwha oku hapu.

I live and work in Hamilton, teaching mental health nursing to post graduate nurses and  working on a really interesting variety of research projects! I am currently working on mental health, prostate cancer, breast cancer and Kooti Rangatahi areas.

My programme of research and scholarly activity focuses broadly on social justice in health care, but a key part of my research practice includes assisting mental health service users to develop and sustain research capacity.

Research methodologies include autoethnography, and arts-based, creative research practices such as short stories and poetry.
