Key details

Professor Sharon M Weldon

Professor of Healthcare Simulation and Workforce development


Professor Sharon Marie Weldon joined the University of Greenwich in 2017, bringing with her expertise in healthcare simulation and research. She leads the Centre for Professional Workforce Development and the Simulation Group, and is Deputy Head for Research and Enterprise in the School of Health Sciences, as well as section lead for research and advancing clinical practice. She holds honorary positions with Imperial College London and Barts Health NHS Trust.

Sharon is a registered general nurse with experience in emergency and trauma paediatric operating theatres, of a variety of surgical procedures ranging from general and ophthalmic, to orthopaedics and plastics. Sharon has specialised as an infectious disease nurse working in a specialised unit and clinic, a Ugandan hospital and for the Health Protection Agency (now Public Health England), whilst further specialising in TB and HIV.

Whilst practicing nursing, she completed a Masters at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Public Health, with a particular emphasis on global health, health economics, disease epidemiology and diagnostic tests sensitivity and specificity. Following this her research focus changed to communication and innovative uses of simulation. She completed a PhD with Imperial College London that used theoretical and empirical data to generate a conceptual and process model relating to a novel form of simulation termed Sequential Simulation (SqS).

Her research now mainly focuses on simulation (specifically transformative simulation and sequential simulation), communication, teamwork, and workforce development. She collaborates widely and uses a range of methodologies to address her research questions and to generate impact in practice.

Research / Scholarly interests

Sharon's research, teaching and enterprise activity focuses on the healthcare workforce and in particular, areas of healthcare simulation, and surgical communication. These are developing fields that she is at the forefront of helping to forge. Her work on music and communication in the operating theatre was the first of its kind to address (through empirical evidence) hierarchical issues related to music amongst surgical teams and has received international recognition and acclaim, as well as having a direct impact on surgical team practices in the USA. Similarly, her work on healthcare simulation has helped to recognise and develop new uses and approaches to simulation that goes beyond traditional raining and is transformative in nature and progressive in design. Although in its infancy when she began this innovative work with the Imperial College Centre for Engagement and Simulation Science, this approach to simulation is growing rapidly.

Her work has had far-reaching impact. For example, one of her papers ‘Music and Communication in the Operating Theatre’ received substantial global media attention. She was invited to give live interviews to major media outlets; including BBC Breakfast, The BBC radio 4 Today Programme, and BBC World News. In addition, it was reported in all global major newspapers, was Wiley’s #1 Best of Nursing 2015, and paper of the day winner at the RCN’s International Research Conference, Glasgow, 2014. In relation to this research, US Patient safety (Quick Safety) and surgical bodies (American Association of Surgical Physician Assistants) have changed their policies and guidelines. A related paper on communication in operating theatres has also been included in the NICE Evidence Search.

Her work on Transformative forms of Simulation has helped to inform Clinical Commissioning Groups policies on integrated care by engaging with primary and secondary care stakeholders in developing new approaches to integrated care through simulation; the co-designed situating of a new diagnostic breath test for oesophageal cancer within a care pathway that was simulated to oesophageal cancer survivors; the simulated re-creation of the operating theatre over a 100-year period to engage the public and healthcare professionals around the future of surgical ethics, technology, culture and patient advocacy; and to address the experience of care through the simulated replication and comparison of a three-Michelin starred restaurant (the Fat Duck) and a day surgery unit, to name but a few.In addition, it has received many awards and accolades, including: nomination for best research at SESAM conference, 2018, workshop winner at the ASPiH conference, 2017, poster competition winner at HENWL conference, 2016 (£500 prize), and an invitation to do a TEDx talk.

Throughout her career Sharon has been involved in and led on a variety of research projects including a prognostic study for latent TB detection; an ethnomethodological study investigating communication in operating theatres using video recordings; a study investigating the training of new social interactions strategies to operating teams through the medium of simulation; a study developing the concept of Sequential Simulation (simulated care pathways) and its applications; a study on the use of Low-cost, portable equipment and backdrops providing 'realistic enough' recreations of clinical settings for pedagogical activities (Distributed Simulation); and studies looking at the use of simulation for engagement and educational purposes between clinicians, professionals and experts of all-kinds, publics and patients, to involve, co-design and co-produce healthcare related outcomes; to name but a few.

Sharon draw's on a range of methodologies (gained through her varied research experience) to address her research questions to ensure the right method is used for the research needs and to ensure the generation of impact in practice.Additionally, her research on simulation has generated a range of teaching and training materials including a model for Sequential Simulation; a surgical team training course that has been implemented at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital (as part of a Trust-wide initiative on human factors training), Buckinghamshire New University, and Tulane Medical School, USA; as well as the co-development of simulation learning technologies. She has also written chapters for simulation-based education and simulation-based research guidance books, and is currently writing two new books.
