Career Summary

Biography

John Tessier is a lecturer in Diagnostic Radiography and has been a radiographer for over 30 years, having completed his Diploma Diagnostic Medical Radiography in 1987. He holds a Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching (University of Newcastle), a Diploma of Business (Frontline Management) and is currently enrolled in Master of Philosophy (Medical Radiation Science). John has worked in senior management positions in the private radiology sector and has been involved in the training of staff, in particular with regards to computed tomography (CT).

Joh has been the recipient of teaching awards including the Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (2011). With in a keen interest in the professional placement component of undergraduate education John has twice been awarded the University of Newcastle, Faculty of Health and Medicine, Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Staff Member of the Year (2011 & 2016). John has been awarded the University of Newcastle, Faculty of Health and Medicine International Collaborations Staff Excellence Award in 2012 for his work with students from Singapore upgrading their qualifications from diploma to degree.. John maintains a strong interest in collaborations internationally and is currently working with the Shanghai University of Medicine and Health Sciences, China.

John's research focuses on the professional placement component of undergraduate education and has resulted in conference presentations at the last three WACE (World Association for Co-operative and Work-Integrated Education) World Conferences held in Durban, South Africa (2013), Kyoto, Japan (2015) and Chiang Mai, Thailand (2017).

© 2016 Aims Neuropathies are common complications of diabetes and are proposed to influence peripheral bone, principally via an altered vascular supply. This study aimed to determine the relationship between subtypes of neuropathy and vascular reactivity on foot bone density in people with diabetes. Methods A case¿control observational design was utilised with two groups: those with diabetic peripheral large fibre neuropathy (n¿=¿23) and a control group with diabetes but without neuropathy (n¿=¿23). Bone density in 12 foot bones was determined with computed tomography scanning. Additionally, post-occlusive reactive hyperemia, presence of small fibre neuropathy and heart rate variability were determined. T-tests and hierarchical regression were used to examine the relationships among the variables. Results No difference in foot bone density was found between those with and those without large fibre neuropathy. Furthermore, no association between heart rate variability or reactive hyperemia and bone density was found. Small fibre neuropathy was associated with increased cuboid trabecular bone density (p¿=¿0.006) with its presence predictive of 14% of the variance. Conclusions This study found no clear association between presence of diabetic neuropathies and foot bone density. Furthermore, vascular reactivity appears to have no impact on bone density.
