Collaboration

Through international and national partnership I am involved in numerous research collaborations in the areas of child & adolescent health, family nursing and internationalisation of BN learning & teaching. Professor Emeritus John DeFrain has written the following testament of my collaboration aptitude:

I'm pleased to write you about Lindsay Smith…I find him to be bright, energetic, very positive in his attitude, resilient, always moving forward, and dedicated to making a difference in the world. Lindsay (is) interested in health promotion using a family strengths paradigm — an assets base rather than a deficit model.
