Career Summary

Biography

I was appointed as a conjoint lecturer after more than ten years experience as a lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Newcastle. Prior to this I gained extensive community nursing experience and expertise in Sydney. Much of this experience involved working in partnership with older people and their formal or informal carers, often family members. 

I am very interested in the quality of health care older people and their family members experience and have developed an interest in the experiences of families during care of the older person in various settings. In 2007 this led me to lead an a pilot study designed to test a participatory action research approach to a range of problems associated with assessing, preventing and managing older person delirium in acute care settings. This was followed a year later with involvement in a study designed to evaluate the outcomes of the PAR pilot study. My PhD research built further on this interest and turned to exploring the experiences of families during an older loved one’s delirium.  Building on my experience in community health and interest in care of the older person, I lead an interdisciplinary team based research project with two community service providers in 2015. This project focused on the implementation of consumer directed care to home care packages in Australia.

Whilst at the University my teaching focused on the undergraduate nursing program where I co-ordinated partnership/therapeutic relationship and primary health care courses, as well as teaching into a range of other courses, including those related to older person care and foundational studies. My expertise in teaching has been acknowledged through receipt of Faculty and University awards (individual and team based) related to student learning/teaching.

Research Expertise
Delirium in older people, older people and their family members, consumer directed care, community aged care, qualitative research methodologies, in particular phenomenology, participatory action research and qualitative descriptive research.

Teaching Expertise

© 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.Aims and objectives: To provide a narrative literature review about family experiences during older person delirium. Background: Delirium is a common and serious condition which manifests when older people are unwell. Family members of older people are likely to encounter their loved one and become involved in care during delirium. Design: Narrative literature review. Methods: Electronic database and Google Scholar¿ searches were conducted using search terms for delirium, family, experience and older people. Results: Though family members are important partners in the care of older people, there has been little exploration of their experiences during delirium. Current literature identifies that family members experience unexpected, rapid and unpredictable changes in their older loved one, absence of the person they know, distress, not knowing about delirium nor how to help, and supportive and unsupportive relationships with health care staff. Conclusions: Health care staff need understanding about what it means for family to have someone close to them have delirium. Without understanding, it is difficult for staff to respond with compassion, provide support and appropriately include family in the older person's care. There is a need to mitigate family distress and provide support, including information which addresses family concerns. Relevance to clinical practice: The distress family members experience, the impact of losing connection to their loved one, and the difficulty family face in sustaining hope for their loved one's return needs to be recognised and addressed by health care staff, particularly nurses, during the older person's care.

© 2016 John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd.In the course of a phenomenological study that explored the experiences of family members during their older loved one's delirium, a range of delirium experiences depicted in artistic, creative, and linguistic media were reviewed. The search for, and compilation of, media sources for reflection during data analysis is described in this paper. In doing so, the researcher reveals how attentiveness and openness to varied depictions of lived experiences, as well as a valuing attitude toward challenging subjective perspectives, can enhance researcher reflexivity and appreciation of interpretive meanings. Turning to media depictions of delirium offered alternative perspectives on the experience. It challenged the researcher's assumptions, enhanced phenomenological reflection, promoted critique of evolving interpretations, and suggested meanings that might not have otherwise been realized. The approach used is a potent, although often overlooked, way to differentiate the nature of phenomena shared through lived experience data. Media-based methods and their use in phenomenology continue to be explored. Illustrations of how to integrate media sources, as well as discussion about the benefits and alternatives to more common uses, are needed.

© 2016 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.Aims and objectives: To examine qualitative research findings about family experiences of absence or loss during older person delirium, and provide a critical discussion of the similarities and differences in these experiences with conceptual understandings of absence and loss. Background: Families who care for older people with chronic illnesses experience many losses. However, the nondeath loss experiences of family during an older loved one's delirium, an acute condition accompanied by marked changes in demeanour, have received little consideration. Design: Discursive position paper. Methods: The findings from two qualitative research studies about family experiences during an older loved one's delirium are discussed in relation to the concepts of absence and nondeath loss. Results: The uncharacteristic behaviours and cognitive changes that accompany delirium may estrange family who, despite the older person's corporeal presence, sense the profound absence or loss of their loved one. Although the notion of absence, a nondeath loss, is similar to the experiences of family of people with chronic conditions, there are differences that distinguish these encounters. The similarities and differences between absence during delirium and the concepts of psychological absence, nonfinite loss and psychosocial death are discussed. Psychosocial death, reversibility/irreversibility and partial marked change, are suggested as conceptual descriptions for the absence families experience during an older loved one's delirium. Conclusions: The sense of absence or loss that family may experience during their older loved one's delirium needs to be recognised, understood and addressed by healthcare staff. Understanding or appreciating conceptualisations of absence, as a nondeath loss, may enhance understandings of family member needs during delirium and enable better support strategies. Relevance to clinical practice: Conceptualisations of absence enhance understandings of family distress and needs during their older loved one's delirium. The potential for family members to experience their loved one's absence during delirium, a nondeath loss, needs to be considered by healthcare staff. Family experiences of absence during delirium need to be recognised by healthcare staff, acknowledged as a potential source of distress, and considered when involving family in the older person's care. Nurses are ideally placed to respond compassionately and provide appropriate family member re-assurance, support and information during delirium. Information should include possible impacts on family and coping strategies.

© 2015 Australian College of Nursing Ltd.Aim: This paper describes and discusses the development and implementation of sequential blended learning strategies in one Australian post-graduate nursing program designed to support student transition to the Nurse Practitioner (NP) role. Background: Despite the availability of NP practice standards and role descriptions, the diversity and complexity of NP practice can make it difficult for students commencing post-graduate NP programs to comprehend what ways they need to develop to meet professional expectations. Scholarly critique: This paper examines this contemporary post-graduate education issue. Blended learning strategies provided an opportunity to address the requirements, diversity and complexity of NP practice early in the NP program. Students were confronted with the gap between their current level of competence and NP competence, and supported to plan and travel the transitional and developmental pathway to achieve competence. Conclusion: Working with students from early on in their degree enables them to progressively and more clearly envision the gap between their current level of competence and that required of the Australian NP role. Adopting a sequential blended learning approach is one way to engage students in preparing for their future role. Consideration of design elements integral to blended learning approaches is important, including a need for authenticity and support. Preparing NPs who fully comprehend the nature and scope of their practice is both vital for safety and of strategic importance to the nursing profession. Examples of how to facilitate student understanding of the NP role are needed to inform educational practice.
