Email daryle.deering@otago.ac.nz

Daryle has worked extensively as a mental health nurse in the addiction and mental health field.

The focus of her PhD was on methadone treatment for opioid dependence.

Her general research areas of interest are

  1. addiction treatment, outcomes, therapeutic alliance, and consumer perceptions and, more recently, with NAC colleagues, obesity and compulsive overeating;
  2. specialist nursing practice within the addiction and broader mental health areas of practice.

She is the current President of Te Ao Maramatanga, New Zealand College of Mental Health Nurses and a long term member of the Drug and Alcohol Nurses of Australasia.

Daryle co-ordinates a national interdisciplinary distance learning paper (treatment of addiction and co-existing disorders) and provides supervision for masters and PhD students.

She particularly welcomes inquiries from nurses interested in addiction/co-existing problems in respect to education pathways and research.
