Personal profile

Research interests

I am an emergency physician and medical educator. As a senior staff specialist in Emergency Medicine at the Gold Coast University Hospital, I am active in clinical teaching across the continuum of medical learners. I am also the medical director of the Gold Coast Simulation Service - a leader in 'in situ' simulation and in using simulation for quality improvement outcomes. I was previously the Director of Queensland Medical Education and Training (QMET), within Queensland Health. Prior to undertaking my role at QMET, I was the Director of the first private company provider of simulation based educational services, and specialised in the provision of 'insitu' and mobile simulation training.

I completed my FACEM in 2001, and undertook further study in medical education at Stanford (International visiting scholar emergency medicine 2003) and at Harvard (Harvard Macy Leaders in Health professional education 2005/6). I am a previous Fulbright scholar (2002), and received the ACEM Teaching Excellence award in 2008.

My main research interests are in the application of simulation and scenario based training in health service environments. In particular, the opportunities for targeting health service outcomes and improving interdepartmental collaboration with 'in situ' simulation activities.

My other research interests relate to scenario and screen based simulation for undergraduate students, and the transition from our traditional PBL approach to learning to a App based format using case based learning for Year 3 of our medical program. This is part of a broader interest in technology enabled learning and the use of social media in critical care education

I am part of a team who received an ARC Discovery Grant to examine the impact of the NEAT (4 hour target) on emergency physicians practice.

Statement for HDR students

I am a supervisor for 2 student projects (one multi-centre) on the use of social media for medical education and real time clinical decision support, and another student project on prescribing patters in the ED.

I would be interested in projects involving the application of simulation within a health service environment - for education and training, and for health service improvement.
