I have a long history of university academic leadership. Most recently I was Interim Executive Dean Faculty of Health, Deakin University. Prior to that role I was Head, School of Nursing and Midwifery for 11 years and Director of the Centre for Quality and Patient Safety (QPS) research. I have expertise in university leadership, curriculum development and clinical learning. My research program has been focused on alternative models of health care delivery particularly Hospital in the Home (HITH).
