Professor Jeroen Hendriks

The Leo J. Mahar Cardiovascular Nursing Chair

College of Nursing and Health Sciences

place Bedford Park (N203)
GPO Box 2100, Adelaide 5001, South Australia

Dr Hendriks, RN, MSc, PhD holds the inaugural Leo J Mahar Cardiovascular Nursing Chair at the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Flinders University and the Department of Cardiology, Royal Adelaide Hospital. In this clinical academic role he aims to develop a collaborative of academic and clinical excellence to support joint research endeavours between Flinders University and the Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN).

He is an Academic Nurse and Health Scientist and undertook his PhD (2013) at the Maastricht University Medical Centre, Maastricht, The Netherlands. His Doctoral studies focussed on developing Integrated Care in terms of specialised atrial fibrillation (AF) clinics and proving improved outcomes as well as the role of specialised nurses to manage these clinics.

After being awarded his PhD he undertook Post-Doctoral training at the Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden, and investigated the role of eHealth programs for patients with cardiac arrhythmias. In 2015 he took up the Derek Frewin Lectureship at the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders, University of Adelaide, to further focus on the magnitude of novel models of care (i.e. integrated care) for patients with cardiac arrhythmias and associated cardiovascular conditions.

In the past decade Dr Hendriks has developed an international reputation in the field of integrated care management and the required practice redesign and health care reform associated with the implementation of such approaches. He is fortunate to hold a Future Leader Fellowship from the Australian Heart Foundation.
