Projects per year
Dr Bail’s primary interest is to improve sustainable acute care health delivery for an ageing population. Her nursing career has always combined both research and clinical roles, with experience primarily in general medical and acute palliative care. Her peer reviewed publications are well-cited, and range in topics that include undergraduate nursing, aged care nurse practitioners, prognosis communication, policy analysis, dementia care in hospitals, and the costs of nurse-sensitive outcomes. In identifying and researching the structures and processes which impede or enable quality patient care Dr Bail is also dedicated to sharing her learning and inquiry with nursing students, industry networks and professional groups.
