Allied Health Educator, Data Manager and Workforce Consultant
South Eastern Sydney Local Health District
“I work across the district supporting Allied Health staff with strategies for their services and workforces. I provide education to and develop programs for clinicians so they grow and develop. At a senior level, I analyse data and identify opportunities for workforce development, looking at ways of improving our services. Together, we identify gaps in patient care and discuss solutions. It could be when there’s a need to realign the workforce due to staff shortages or changes in the priorities of the hospital.
This year, I’ve been working hard on two Allied Health projects. A career development program for junior staff, and a data dashboard with a quality of care focus. It will measure activities like how well teams are working together and if we are meeting best practice guidelines from organisations like the National Stroke Foundation.
Outside of work, my goal for the year is to complete another self-supported multi-day hike and my slightly left of field challenge is to play in the Sydney Unicycle Hockey League.”
