Research

My primary research interests focus on serious infections and pain. I am currently researching sepsis; a qualitative study titled Understanding the clinical course and personal experience of sepsis. This study is PhD doctoral work. Additional research activities have involved the collaborative investigation utilising the data set InterRAI [International Resident Assessment Instrument] a tool used to support the comprehensive assessment of older persons. This research group has been investigating pain prevalence and its relationship to falls, fatigue, and depression in a cohort of older adults living in the community.
