As Senior Lecturer in the very popular new University Bachelor of Physiotherapy Program , over the first four years of the program I have had to develope all teaching and assessment materials used within courses for which I was the designated co-ordinator. Thus my research and publication outputs have been less than I would have liked.

Following my appointment as Senior lecturer Physiotherapy I undertook the development and co-ordination of the undergraduate Bachelor of Physiotherapy Program -specifically the first and fourth years of the program.
My contribution otherwise within the program focusses on gender based health issues across the four years of the program as well as Issues related to health promotion.
As testaments to my teaching effectiveness, commencing and continuing students have indicated satisfaction with the course amongst the highest achieved within teh Faculty of Health and well above teh University Average. Students' evaluations of my teaching have been encouraging over the last five years. For 25 years I have taught continence promotion and pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation to graduate Physiotherapists with international invitations to teach in Canada, USA, UK, Hong Kong, New Zealand and in Australia.
I have supervised three successful Research Masters Students and have two current PhD students
