Having started her career as a nurse, Professor Allen realised that the system did not work as effectively as it could for healthcare professionals.

Her research leads the development of new theories to explain the way nurses work within health care systems and the changes in the balance of their work from direct care-giving to organising, administrating and facilitating processes of care. It has great potential to influence the design of nurse training and future workforce planning.
