The Fife guidelines are now being adopted by several other Scottish hospitals and the principles are being taught in Edinburgh and St. Andrews University Medical Schools. Marcia is currently studying the effects on patients’ biochemistry of the change in fluid prescribing in Fife. She employed Scotland’s first Quality Improvement Nurse for Fluid Management in 2013.  Marcia is a member of the Acute Kidney Injury Expert Reference Group for Health Improvement Scotland’s Patient Safety Programme.
