Mrs Aby Mitcell MSc, RGN, BA, FHEA
Senior Lecturer in Nursing Education
Aby Mitchell is a Senior Lecturer in Nursing Education in the Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care at King's College London with an education portfolio relating to teaching primary care, health promotion and public health and simulation and immersive technologies.
Aby started her nursing career in her local general hospital, initially working within a burns and plastics and head and neck cancer unit. In 1999 she embarked on a career in district nursing with a special interest in wound care and leg ulcer management. Latterly, she worked as a Senior Physical Health Lead for Community Mental Health. Aby has an MSc in Advanced Practice (healthcare education).
Aby's publications cover a broad scope of topics from tissue viability to the use of virtual reality in nurse education. She has a particular interest in the use of theatre in education both for student education and population health. Her recent work has examined the role of forum theatre in anti-bullying health promotion education for young people, virtual interprofessional learning and the use of patient stories for undergraduate healthcare students and the use of drama-based patient pathways to improve perceived self-confidence in holistic activities of daily living assessments for first-year undergraduate nursing students.
Aby is a member of the British Journal of Nursing editorial board and the BJN inform advisory panel.
