Biography

I worked as a registered nurse for 32 years in clinical practice in multiple areas in the acute hospital environment. I have been involved in education since 2003, working at TAFE in 2012 and at UniSQ since 2013. I completed my PhD on developing a framework to assess clinical reasoning of undergraduate registered nurses in 2022. My research interests revolve around clinical reasoning, nurse education, Indigenous and Refugee health.

THF2017 R2-01 A comparative, quantitative study of indigenous and nonindigenous retrospective Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) data in rural and regional Emergency Departments in South West QueenslandI was an associate researcher on a completed research project 2017-2019: THF2017 R2-01 “A comparative, quantitative study of indigenous and nonindigenous retrospective Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) data in rural and regional Emergency Departments in South West Queensland”. This research was funded by the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation to the value of $9350. The research examined ED presentations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples at 16 hospital emergency departments across the Darling Downs. As an associate researcher I contributed to discussions analysing the gathered data, identifying additional information required to understand the data and the next phase of the research. An application for an EMF grant in 2017 was indicated for phase 2; however, I was no longer participating in the research by this time. 2017
