Personal profile

Biography

Teaching

I have been teaching at Monash University for a number of years in undergraduate and postgradaute programs in Nursing and Midwifery and in other health science disciplines. I have particular interest in education related to professional issues in nursing, interdisciplinary learning, research, ethics, cancer and palliative care. I have significant experience in the design and teaching of postgraduate programs, particularly in the development of research activities and palliative care.

Research

I am currently the Director of Research Degrees, responsible for higher degrees by research in Nursing and Midwifery. The design of an exciting and stimulating research degrees program and support of research students is instrumental in faciliting great student experiences and completion of excellent research projects. I am an accredited higher degrees supervisor and currently supervising students in Honours, Masters degrees and PhD.

Although my primary research focus is the area of decision making and advance care planning in Palliative Care, through my research students, I have interests in a range of research studies in the Palliative and End of Life Care areas including; mesothelioma, models of care, cancer and education. I have experience in a range of qualitative research methods including grounded theory and case study and in descriptive quantitative methods.
