Stacey is a postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Pre-hospital and Emergency Care - Australia and New Zealand (PEC-ANZ) Centre for Research Excellence. Her research examines the relationship between advance care planning and ambulance transfers from aged care to the emergency department, and potential role for pre-hospital providers.
Stacey trained as a registered nurse and midwife and has research experience in reproductive medicine, primary health care and general practice as well as acute and restorative care. Her PhD examined post hospital transitions for older persons in the context of the Australian Transition Care Program and decision-making about entry to residential aged care.
Stacey's current research extends her interest in aged care (broadly) to consider how paramedics can support older persons' expressed wishes for a palliative approach to care.

Making a decision about whether to move into residential care or to stay at home is a complex decision for both older people and their carers. Older adults with delirium or cognitive impairment are frequently excluded from research projects yet this is the group most likely to be confronted with this dilemma. Little is known about the best ways to provide older people and their families in this situation with support.
