I am a registered nurse and a sociologist. I hold postgraduate qualifications in nursing, education, social science, and public health. I have been engaged in teaching, practice, and research in the areas of aged and palliative care nursing for over twenty years and have published broadly in these fields over that time. In 2011 I was appointed inaugural Professor of Aged Care, a joint appointment between the Australian Catholic University and Mercy Health in Melbourne. My research interests include social constructions of death and dying, the nexus between aged and palliative care, dementia as a terminal illness, health workers in aged care and palliative contexts, and qualitative methodologies.
