Research Expertise

Research Interests

My key area of interest concerns people having control of their health care outcomes; how we process information to make health related choices, and how external factors might militate against our optimum health. 

Additionally I am concerned with leadership models associated with prevailing health care policy and organisational systems; care, compassion, and spirituality as significant contributors to positive health care outcomes, and the best possible use of nursing skills and talents to maximise those outcomes.
