Position/s

Professor
Palliative and Supportive Services

Biography

I am currently Professor of Palliative and Supportive Services. Funded projects include NIH funding for an international multi-site randomised controlled trial on the use of oxygen versus medical air in people who do not qualify for long term home oxygen. I am a current fund holder of NHMRC grants in Australia and have lead a national palliative care clinical trials program funded for more than $10million by the Australian government over the last four years. I was part of a team who received the Flinders University Vice Chancellors Teaching Award. Previous roles include national presidencies of two peak bodies, Palliative Care Australia and the Clinical Oncological Society of Australia.

To date I have published more than 200 peer reviewed articles and author or editor of four books. I am also on the executive of the Area of Strategic Research Investment - Flinders Centre for Clinical Change.
