Personal profile


A/Prof Lisa Kuhn is an emergency nurse with more than 25 years of experience in clinical, academic and research nursing.  She uses quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods to research a broad range of issues affecting quality of care in vulnerable patients, concentrating particularly on early hospital care for patients with heart disease and mental health issues.  She aims to increase equity in emergency and cardiovascular health care for women and socially disadvantaged groups through driving evidence into practice. 

Lisa collaborates widely with emergency, cardiovascular and epidemiologist colleagues to increase access to evidence-based treatment for women’s heart disease, for which she has been asked to speak at numerous events including Heart Foundation and Women’s Health Victoria fora, Australian College of Critical Care Nurses Cardiac Seminars, in addition to nursing and medical conferences. Current emergency-centred collaborations include work to reduce repeated opioid overdoses with Monash Addiction Research Centre colleagues and other studies to reduce over-sedation in elderly emergency patients with Victorian and NSW colleagues at Cabrini and Monash Health.

Lisa has received several peer-reviewed scientific awards, postgraduate scholarships and a postdoctoral research fellowship.  She has served on an ethics committee, is a regular peer reviewer for international and national scientific journals and has a growing track record in publications and attracting grant support.  Current supervision includes students at Honours, Masters’ and Doctor of Philosophy level.
