Helen, who was a qualified Nurse Practitioner (MSc) and adviser on Health policy and strategy in the UK, moved to Tasmania in 2004.  She now works part time as an Independent Advanced Specialist Nurse who advocates and empowers individuals in the understanding and management of their chronic condition and facilitates liaisons with allied health professionals and specialists where required.

Helen’s expertise in chronic disease management was utilised by eHSRG in the Inter Professional Learning Project of 2009, and her research involvement with the group continued into 2011 with the ACQSHC Project to provide a literature review and environmental scan on the development on quality and safety indicators in primary health care.

Helen has now started her PhD with eHSRG on primary health care, lifestyle, complex and chronic disease management and the impact of the e-health expansion.
