Biography

Lin Perry is Professor of Nursing Research and Practice Development, University of Technology Sydney and the Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney Hospital and Sydney Eye Hospital, South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, New South Wales. The main focus of her work has been broadly around research capacity development, service and practice development and evaluation, with major clinical topics of nutrition support and chronic disease management, particularly stroke and diabetes. She has been extensively involved with nutritional support across all areas, from tube feeding regimes for ventilated patients to requirements of patients and carers using Home Enteral Feeding, effects of stroke on taste and smell function, dietary intake of stroke patients and its effects on quality of life in residential aged care. Her stroke work has spanned intensive monitoring in acute stroke through to carers’ long-term needs. She is currently involved with development and evaluation of new service models to support young people with type 1 diabetes in rural areas of NSW. Her experience of practice and service development has included investigation of change management processes, methods and impact of implementing evidence based guidelines and best practice recommendations in acute and community settings at all levels.
