Biography

Sonya Osborne is Professor of Nursing in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at University of Southern Queensland (Ipswich Campus). Dr Osborne's role is built on almost 30 years post registration nursing experience across a range of acute care, ambulatory and academic settings. Her doctoral study (QUT, 2009) explored the relationship between practice culture and barriers to implementation of evidence-based practice, while testing the effectiveness of strategies in changing culture and enabling sustainable practice change. The impact of this research is on organisational strategic planning and capacity building in introducing and sustaining changes to improve patient- and service-level outcomes. Dr Osborne's research interests include knowledge translation and implementation science within the contexts of nursing, hospital and health services, and at the intersection of primary and acute care. Dr Osborne is experienced in quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods research approaches.
