Alan is an intensive care paramedic with an extensive career spanning emergency ambulance service, event medical and health services, and private sector operations across Australia. He has volunteered in East Timor to develop an ambulance service capability, previously held the position of Chief Commissioner at St John Ambulance Australia, and is a Fellow and past director of Paramedics Australasia. He has an academic appointment at Monash University.
Alan believes the delivery of great care is all about collaboration and cooperation between professions, with recognition that great care is always delivered through a multi-disciplinary partnership. He is focused on strengthening relationships between paramedics and clinicians in other disciplines in order to ensure integrated care and best system performance. The consideration of opportunities for all professions to operate at the full extent of their scope, including in new or novel models, is a key part of this work.
