Personal profile

Research interests

My areas of research are focused across two streams:

  • Paediatrics / Child Health, Fitness and Learning
  • Clinical / Health-professions Education. 

I completed my PhD in 2014 on the topic titled 

  • Developing a simple tool for screening the health and motor performance-related fitness of children.  

During 2014 and 2015 I led the

  • Tweed Healthy Schools Project; a pilot program and development of Paediatric Interprofessional Supervision and Service Learning Framework for health services in schools.

Funding from North Coast Interdisciplinary Clinical Training Network, HETI/HWA.

 I am currently leading a research collaboration with colleagues from Bond University, Queensland Health and Australian Catholic University in a CETI funded project titled:

  • Creating a supportive clinical learning environment for physiotherapy students: a feasibility study to enhance collaboration between students and educators using the ‘Everything DiSC’. 

Additionally I am leading an interprofessional research collaboration in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine at Bond University to complete a ECR funded project titled:

  • Can student’s unique behavioural patterns as identified through the Everything DiSC, predict success in health professional programs?
