Emma has more than 15 years’ experience managing the successful implementation of health projects at a state and national level, and across a variety of settings including infectious disease, public health, cancer prevention and aged care.
Emma started her career as a Registered Nurse, before completing further study in health promotion and international public health. This experience at the clinical coalface provided her with invaluable insight into the importance of an integrated health system that delivers tailored, person-centred care.
Prior to commencing at BDHP (now Health Translation Queensland), Emma worked at a Brisbane-based Primary Health Network (PHN) where she supported a range of stakeholders from the local hospital and health service, primary care and community care to identify problematic conditions at a systems level and work together within their own local-level context to leverage change.
Emma brings this experience into her role as NSLI Project Manager at Health Translation Queensland where she works with other translation centres from across Australia to better translate research into best practice to improve the health system and ultimately enhance patient outcomes.
