Research Biography

Sue works with aged care providers and the community to optimise ageing, aged care and the effective use of technology through research translation.

Sue brings over 20 years of physiotherapy experience and more than 15 years of academic experience to the role of  Professor of Healthy Ageing. She joined Flinders University in late 2015 in a position joint funded by Aged Care and Housing Group who she works closely with to promote a healthy ageing agenda. Her research involves collaboration with local governement, aged care and health service providers and colleagues from other universities. She is investigating healthy ageing and functional decline to better understand the opportunities to identify, measure, limit and reverse early changes that are often covert.

Her research in aged care workforce development has included  investigating the effectiveness of simulation and coaching interventions to decrease aggressive incidents, improve person centred care and build compassion.

Her work with the Flinders Digital Health Research Centre and the ARC funded Digital Enhanced Living Hub has developed and trialled Apps for the measurement of prefrailty and frailty, and assistance for people with mild cognitive impairment.
