Professional biography

Summary of professional experience
I am a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (FRACMA) and a Fellow of the Australasian College of Health Service Management (FCHSM) with a Masters in Health Management, and Certification in Health Informatics. I have 6 years of medical management experience in both public and private health care organisations across Australia. My experience is in the area of clinical governance and medico-legal management including the accreditation and delineation of scope of clinical practice of medical practitioners, clinical services and strategic planning, medical workforce planning and in leading clinical incident investigations. As a Specialist in medical administration, I work closely with medical practitioners at all levels in public and private settings, including in engaging doctors with implementing policy, procedures, and system improvements as well as behavioural and cultural change.
Summary of incident review experience
I’ve worked with doctors in guiding them through the investigation processes across a variety of clinical scenarios including RCAs. My focus is on the impact of incidents and human factors on patients and their families and am particularly interested in ensuring that the patients’ and families’ voice is “heard” throughout the investigation process, particularly with respect to recommendations and actions that arise.
I have been involved in and led complex open disclosures, managed significant clinical incidents and have completed formal training in open disclosure and root cause analysis.
