Biography

Chris worked as a paediatric and community nurse before joining the University of Tasmania in 2000. Her initial research focused role with the University Department of Rural Health saw her working with all key Australian and New Zealand ambulance services to develop better systems for incorporating volunteers. She had an extensive consultancy role in the department focused on program logic evaluations before becoming Assistant Director in 2007.

Her research has focused more closely on empowering patients and informal carers in areas of dementia and community services in recent years, with shared decision making as a key component of her work. Chris commenced with the School of Nursing and Midwifery in 2012 and became a  Deputy Dean Graduate Research in 2013, and Associate Head Learning and Teaching School of Health Sciences in 2014. She was appointed as Discipline Head Nursing and Midwifery in 2015 and leads the discipline across teaching and research.

Research Themes

Chris's research aligns with the University's research theme of Better Health. Her research interests include shared decision making and patient empowerment as an important element of health service redesign. Her research covers patients with dementia and chronic diseases and the assistance they need to remain in the community. She led the development and trial of a Nurse-Led Memory Clinic, one of the first in the world.

She publishes in top ranked nursing, health service and gerontological journals such as 'Journal of Clinical Nursing', 'International Psychogeriatrics', and 'Sociology of Health & Illness'. She has published 36 A1 papers, 31 of these since 2010 plus 2 book chapters. Chris is lead/senior author on over 20 papers. As CIA lead Chris has needed to take significant leadership in all aspects of paper design and final product given the low capacity amongst junior nursing researchers.

She publishes systematic literature reviews and research results papers.

Projects

Paediatric & Adolescent INsulin pump Decision Aid - a Novel Intervention (2014)$50,023
Description
To develop and pilot a patient decision aid to help families of children and adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes make decisions about using insulin pumps. As every family is unique, the aid will help families to consider all the issues that may affect their ability to manage insulin pump therapy. We will base the decision aid on evidence in the literature and information from patients and families and expert advisors. We will trial the decision aid with families to see how useful they found the aid and whether it made the decision seem easier and changed their treatment preferences.
