Experience you can trust
I have been Project Manager and Founder/CEO for palliative and aged care sector projects:
As Project Manager for the Mercy Health I developed and implemented this successful DoHA funded collaborative project within a timely, scope and $500,000 budget. I am proud of what I was able to achieve in a short timeframe of 18 months in a complex environment with multiple stakeholders and partner organisations. This included: coordinating project steering, reference and consumer groups, training needs analysis of 17 RACFs, development of staff face-to-face and online training, evaluation of advance care planning, creation of a professional conference, creation of a DVD resource, and development of the industry endorsed book ‘Affirming Life’.
Relationship building & collaborative outcomes
As Founder and former CEO of Beyond Words, biographers for aged care I initiated the establishment of all aspects of a new charitable organisation. Working closely with aged care partners, building and maintaining effective relationships with industry stakeholders was integral to the ongoing success of this award winning initiative.
As Project Manager for WCMICS I worked effectively with PCOC and four hospital-based consultancy services at Peter Mac, STVHM, RMH and WH in supporting a point of care data system for palliative care information. My work with the Southern Metropolitan Palliative Care Consortium also means that I am aware of relevant system and policy challenges in this area.
These examples and more, highlight my ability to coordinate and manage successful multi-stakeholder projects under pressure, and my planning, problem solving and relationship building skills.
I welcome the opportunity to speak with you about how I can make a significant contribution to your healthcare project.
