Biography

Dr Jonathan (Jonny) Branney is a Lecturer in Adult Nursing and teaches on the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing programme and the post-registration Critical Care Nursing course. He has a substantial clinical background as both a registered nurse (critical care; accident & emergency) and a registered chiropractor. He is passionate about the role of biosciences in nursing education, using innovative teaching techniques wherever possible to engage students, and in research into musculoskeletal disorders, particularly that aimed at improving outcomes for patients.

Prior to joining Bournemouth University, Jonny was based at the Institute for Musculoskeletal Research & Clinical Implementation (IMRCI), Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, where he completed award-winning doctoral research into the mechanism of spinal manipulative therapy and its relationship with patient-reported outcomes in the treatment of patients with neck pain. This work included the use of quantitative fluoroscopy (motion x-rays) to measure the movement of the bones in the cervical spine of the participating patients before and after treatment...
