Career summary

Biography

Dr Kathleen Doherty has worked in a diverse range of research fields over her career. Her early career in immunology in Australia and overseas included work on vaccine development, vertical transmission of HIV, and carcinogen induced immunosuppression, largely centring on the regulation of the immune response through antigen presentation. She was awarded her PhD in Medical Sciences from ANU. She has extensive experience of outside the University setting and was a Quality Manager, held the Intellectual Property portfolio and was the Principal Investigator in Experimental Development for the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. She worked extensively in blood product development and progressively became interested in blood donors and their physical and behavioural response to blood donation. During this time she became more interested in translational research and effective service delivery in health care settings and in developing research skills in novice researchers. She has supervised numerous Honours and PhD candidates at the University of Tasmania, University of South Australia and University of Adelaide. She joined the University of Tasmania in a Research Development role in 2008 and currently works with the Faculty in research strategy and performance.

Optimising Respiratory Care in Dementia (ORCID): an educational program for carers (2016 - 2017)$45,799
Description
Managing chronic respiratory conditions in residential aged care is challenging, particularly for residents with dementia. In pilot studies, we have shown that respiratory conditions are often underdiagnosed and undertreated. Carers are well placed to observe and respond to changes in respiratory health but their knowledge of respiratory care is limited and the recognition, treatment and management of respiratory conditions is not well understood. In collaboration with Aged Care staff and respiratory experts, we will develop an educational module: Optimising Respiratory Care in Dementia (ORCID), to address this deficit in knowledge. Once developed, we will examine the impact this has on the dementia and respiratory knowledge of a group of carers and nurses in a pilot trial. A better approach to respiratory care in dementia will ultimately improve the quality of life of residents and allow the development of a systematic approach to observation, review and referral for residents with respiratory needs.

Critical issues in the creation of dementia friendly communities: Maintaining housing for early and mid stage clients and their carers (2016)$6,990
Description
Project objectives:To better understand community attitudes to people with early and mid stage dementia living in community, with a view to developing policies to assist private housing providers in their provision of services to people with dementia living in the community. This paper grows out of Dr. Erika Altmanns publications on the housing industry at the University of Tasmania and supervised by Dr. Max Travers. It draws from and builds on the success of the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre in the provision of outstanding on-line educational courses demonstrated through the MOOC to deliver better health outcomes and the experience Erika has gained through working on projects at Wicking with Dr Doherty and others. To develop the necessary evidence base upon which to mount higher level grant applications with a view to developing, where necessary, intervention practices that assist people with dementia to live in community for longer. The 2017 DCRC round is targeted.To develop cross disciplinary collaborations between academics within the ABL, Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre and Faculty of Health Sciences with a view to tackling a major cultural challenge facing local, national and international societies.To develop the research skills of early career researchers and provide sufficient mentoring to enable them to build their research careers and enhance UTAS capacity.

Identifying and targeting risk related behaviours raised by Tasmanian youth attending an injury prevention P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth) Program (2015 - 2017)$92,833
Description
The proposal has two key elements: the expanded delivery of an education program designed to reduce trauma in youth and research into that program to understand risk related behaviour in Tasmanian youth, impact of the program on that behaviour and to identify the elements of the program which are critical to engagement of attendees which may subsequently benefit future iterations. The program seeks to give participants a snapshot of the possible traumatic and often preventable consequences of risk related behaviour. Program participants spend time in the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Trauma wards and rehabilitation units of the hospital getting an upfront, true life experience of the impact of trauma on young lives. One of the unique parts of the program is that participants get to meet real hospital patients who are recovering from recent trauma and their families. Participants of the program are typically identified by their respective schools and are usually either s tudents considered to be at risk or school leaders who then support their peers.In addition to expanded implementation of the program, the project team are seeking funding to undertake further research int o the efficacy of this program. The specific research question is At what point in the P.A.R.T.Y. program do youths identify with the subject matter as relating directly to them and how does this moment influence risk related choices.The research aims are:-To evaluate the risk related behaviours of participants in relation to demographic discriminators-To identify the elements of the program which have the highest impact on participants-To understand the short term impact of the program on current and future risk taking behaviours in rural and urban settingsData is collected via questionnaire pre-program, on completion of the program and at three month follow up. Data analysis uses simple descriptive statistics and thematic analysis.This original research will be published in a recognised HERDC journal.

Mechanistic studies of Jack Jumper Venom desensitisation at the T cell level (2014)$5,000
Description
Allergy to Jack Jumper venom is an acute medical emergency which potentially affects >1% of Tasmanians. Desensitisation by venom immunisation therapy (VIT) protects against severe reactions, but the precise mechanism has not been elucidated. This project seeks to understand how immune cells are re-educated to prevent life-threatening allergy.
