Personal profile


Dr Cameron (BN, MHealthSc(HealthProm&HealthEd), PhD), is a Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and an affiliate fellow of the Australian Centre for Heart Health (2017-current) and the newly established Victorian Heart Institute (2020). With 25 years of experience as a clinical nurse, caring for patients with cardiovascular disease, stroke and heart failure, Dr Cameron is passionate about improving health outcomes for patients and their carers, following a cardiovascular event or stroke. She completed her PhD (2010) so that she could focus on an academic career and over the past 10 years has developed an international record of accomplishment with her research publications (h-index of 16). Her expertise is recognised for investigating cognitive impairment as a barrier to patient’s engagement in heart failure self-care; understanding carer burden; and more recently in developing and testing novel models of care, including e-health, to support recovery and secondary prevention after stroke.

Dr Cameron has established strong collaborations with nursing academics and multidisciplinary clinicians across Australia, securing over $9M in competitive grant funding to improve models of care for patients with cardiovascular disease and stroke. Currently, Dr Cameron is leading research into models of e-health for recovery and secondary prevention for stroke and cardiovascular disease. She is a co-investigator and project manager on the Recovery-focused Community support to Avoid readmissions and improve Participation after Stroke (ReCAPS) NHMRC Project Grant (APP1162596. 2019-2022). Dr Cameron is also supporting A/Prof Kuhn forging a program of research to better understand women’s future risk of developing cardiovascular disease after presenting to ED with chest pain and developing a nurse-led program specific to the needs of these at-risk women.

Career summary: 39 peer-reviewed publications; 4 editorials and 2 invited review papers; 26 published peer-reviewed abstracts; manuscript reviewer for 31 journals; $9 million income (since 2004).
