What influenced your decision to become a nurse, and eventually a Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner? At the research centre my first project was to investigate the process of dying in the acute care setting.

The model is called Palliative Care Needs Rounds. I completed a graduate certificate in oncology and found myself drawn towards palliative care.

Becoming a nurse practitioner gave me the opportunity to do this as I could still do the hands on care, do research and help to improve dying in the community. Ann N Y Acad Sci.

From there I worked in the specialist palliative care consulting service at Canberra Hospital and again learned from great mentors and commenced a masters in palliative care at Flinders University. It is the largest trial of its type. The experience of dying improves if it is recognised and planned for. Furthermore, developing a model that works is very rewarding to me. Our research team came up with an idea to integrate a proactive rather than reactive model of palliative care into residential aged care. Nurse practitioners can make a real difference, and it is a very worthwhile job to have.

I like that I now feel confident to walk into an emergent clinical mess - either poorly controlled symptoms, or a profoundly complex family crisis where others feel overwhelmed. My interest in Palliative Care, research and furthering my education increased. It is that spirit of humility and shared endeavour that I look for in others which makes health care and palliative care in particular such a compelling and exciting field to work and learn in. In 2017 we commenced a randomised controlled trial of the model across 12 out of 28 residential aged care facility sites in Canberra. As of September 2018, he also holds the World Record for the fastest Marathon dressed as Elvis Presley. Like many nurses, I have to say that nothing beats the feeling of competence and confidence.
