Research

Research

Research interests

My particular research interests are directed primarily toward three main platforms of research:

  • Knowledge translation and decision making in clinical nursing including evidence-based practice, evidence implementation and utilisation; specific focus – patient safety and quality of care delivery.
  • Nursing and Midwifery workforce issues, including role development
  • Chronic Illness with a particular interest in organ donation and transplantation.
