I am a Research Fellow with the Centre for Healthcare Resilience and Implementation Science, Australian Institute of Health Innovation, and Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Health Stewardship, Australian National University (ANU). In the past I have worked on collaborative projects between the UNSW, ANU and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Health Directorate.

I have expertise in healthcare practice and research. My clinical background is in neurological rehabilitation as a speech pathologist, with 15 years’ experience working in health services as a clinician and healthcare manager. I have pursued my healthcare interests and experience in linguistics, speech pathology and health management into my research career. My research uses qualitative methodology, focusing on patient-centred care, patient decision-making and healthcare communication.

My research has explored barriers and facilitators to the delivery of patient-centred care in a terminal and progressive disease, and in chronic disease self-management. My PhD thesis, entitled ‘What influences patient-centred decision-making in motor neurone disease? A study of stakeholder perspectives’ examined the factors influencing patients’ decision-making in motor neurone disease (MND) multidisciplinary care. The study revealed a range of challenges to patient engagement in care, and explored the tensions between the delivery of patient-centred care and evidence-based practice. A model of patient-centred decision-making was developed to improve care delivery. Recent publications have examined patient and carer engagement within multidisciplinary team care, and interprofessional care in specialised chronic disease and MND healthcare networks.
