Personal profile

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.
