Research Biography

I have taken a leadership role in this area with an academic career that was well informed by my clinical expertise, research and scholarly approach.

My PhD focused on the epidemiology and clinical management of patients with severe sepsis in Australia. I have interests and projects in critical care practice, epidemiology, workfoce, policy and patient outcome.

My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that teaching and learning strategies and experiences are continuous, summative and integral to the professional relationships that develop between the students, the university, industry and the wider community. a leader and a role model in my specialty. I am committed to the professional role of the critical care nurse and am leading this by involvement with the core professional body for the specialty; the Australian College of Critical care Nurses.
