Career Summary

Biography

Having qualified as a diagnostic radiographer over 30 years ago, I have worked in both public hospitals and private practices in NSW. My particular clinical expertise has spanned computed tomography and accident and emergency imaging. I left full-time clinical practice to pursue an academic career at the University of Newcastle in 1989 and was Discipline Head of Medical Radiation Science (MRS) from 1997 to 2001. In 2003 I relocated to Tamworth with the advent of the University Department of Rural Health - Northern NSW, where I am currently Associate Professor and Deputy Director (UDRH). From the beginning of 2012, my position is based in Taree.

My research pursuits over the years have included radiation dosimetry, reducing patient anxiety in MRI, and low back pain rehabilitation studies, as well as educational and rural health research. In 1996 I completed a Master of Science degree by research in 'Radiation Dose in Computed Tomography of the Head with Reference to Scanning Protocol' and in 2006 completed a PhD in 'Remote X-ray Operator Radiography: A Case Study in Interprofessional Rural Clinical Practice'. Since 2000, I have had over 50 peer-reviewed papers published in various national and international journals. My current research focuses on rural health workforce issues, with particular interest in the development of new models of care that incorporate interprofessional education and practice. I have a strong interest in rural and remote health care, especially as it relates to the delivery of medical imaging services. Since 1993, I have coordinated the NSW Remote X-ray Operators Licensing Course and I have maintained an interest in this field on a national level.

Over the years I have contributed significantly to the medical imaging profession and to the health service industry in general, having served on a number of boards and committees, such as: 

  • Honorary Treasurer, Board of Directors, Australian Rural Health Education Network (ARHEN)

  • Chair, Rural Interprofessional Education Network (RIPEN), Australian Rural Health Education Network (ARHEN)

  • Associate Editor (International), Radiography, official journal of the UK Society of Radiographers

  • Chair, Rural and Remote Practitioners Advisory Panel (RRPAP), Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR)

  • Chair, Advanced Practitioners Advisory Panel (APAP), Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR)

  • Board member of Medical Radiation Learning Online (MRLO) for the Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR)

  • Member of the Advisory Committe, Hunter and Coast Interdiscipinary Clinical Training Network (AIR)

In addition to academic awards, I have revieved the following professional awards and recognitions: 

  • Vice Chancellor's Award for Programs that Enhance Student Learning - 2013

  • Nicholas Outtersider Memorial Medallion for services to the profession, Australian Institute of Radiography – 2009

  • Fellowship of the Australian Institute of Radiography – 1993

  • Conjoint Board Diploma of the Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR) & Royal Australian College of Radiologists (RACR) – 1978

Research expertise

I have expertise in both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, with a focus of rural health issues and particularly the delivery of medical radiation services in rural and remote areas. My research experience also includes enquiry into interprofessional collaboration and team-based care in a variety of practice setting, and into the development of health care roles that extend practitioners beyond their traditional occupational boundaries.
