An experienced Vascular Access Specialist of over 25 years, my clinical background and qualifications began in Coronary and Intensive Care Nursing, Advanced Clinical Nutrition, Vascular Access and Ultrasound. Previously, I was the Clinical Nurse Consultant of the Central Venous Access and Parenteral Nutrition Service at the Liverpool Hospital, a 1000-bed academic institution in Sydney, Australia, which I solely established and then successfully lead for over 21 years.
Now, as Director and Principle Consultant of Global Vascular Access, LLC, my focus is to improve all ultrasound-guided vascular access procedures for inserting clinicians globally, and provide all clinicians with a greater understanding of vessel health strategies to prevent ongoing vascular access related complications.
Global Vascular Access, LLC is a specialty-clinician organization that provides practice management services to clinicians performing or learning vascular access procedures, ultrasound and its required knowledge-based education. It was formed to identify and partner with leading quality groups and industry who desire a strategic partner with the evidence-based resources and expertise to invest in their practice support infrastructure and position them for continued success and growth within their practice areas, improving clinican and facility outcomes and patient satisfaction.
I have been instrumental in helping advance the scope of clinicians knowledge and skills in vascular access issues, and have contributed to clinical research and evidence-based literature in promoting patient safety and improved clinical practices and outcomes in Vascular Access.
As an early pioneer of the role of the advanced non-physician vascular access specialist globally, I am actively engaged in clinician education, simulation, research and evidence-based practices in vascular access. With a strong respect for quality evidence-based literature and education, my aim is in promoting a holistic approach to vascular access, with the patient as the central focus.
