Previous Major Grants: Three NSW Workcover Applied Research Projects in collaboration with the NSW Nurses Association and Maya Guest from the School of Health Sciences, focused on Occupational Health and Safety Issues for the Nursing Workforce in New South Wales, Australia.

Other projects: Violence in ED, Testing quality indicators of simulation, Adult lifestyle incentives for vitality and energy, Second victims of adverse events, Evaluating the preceptor role, Community healthy adults project.

Dr Kable is supervising research higher degree candidates studies on a range of acute care, education and safety related topics including: patient initiated violence, clinical simulation and information and communication technology, professional interaction and patient experiences, mental health patient experiences, and evaluation of patient outcomes following intervention programs.

Convenor of the University of Newcastle Evidence Based Health Care Group: a JBI Evidence Synthesis Group, and Trained to undertake systematic reviews for Joanna Briggs Institute.

PhD thesis: Measurement and Prevention of Adverse Events in High Volume Elective Surgical Procedural Groups in an Acute Hospital Setting. 2004. This dissertation was the result of an intervention study that required extensive collaboration with various disciplines to develop, implement and evaluate the intervention. This study was preceded by a secondary data analysis of the Quality in Australian Health Care data base and the results were also published in a Report to New South Wales Department of Health - Surgical Adverse Events Study 1999. This work was funded by the Ministerial Advisory Committee Quality in Health Care, NSW Department of Health (NSW -MACQHC).
