My personal experience of palliative care was with my mum who was provided with excellent non-specialist palliative care in an aged care setting. As a family we felt supported, listened to and encouraged to be with Mum for as long as we wished and assist with her end of life care.

With over 40 years experience working in health, I am keen to share my knowledge and understandings of palliative care through my experience as a consumer and carer, as a nurse in paediatric/neonatal intensive care, as a qualitative researcher and in palliative care policy.

Living in a rural area and listening to other people’s experiences of palliative care, motivates me to contribute to conversations and research about improving access to and increasing the community’s understanding of palliative care in regional, rural and remote settings. I am also interested in how best to support non-specialist palliative care providers in primary care, aged care and disability services.

I value working in collaboration with First Nations people to ensure their strengths, cultural knowledge and wisdom informs system and practice improvements to provide quality palliative care with First Nations people, their families and communities.
