Professor of Nursing,
School of Nursing and Midwifery

Biography

Since becoming a Registered Nurse in the early 1990s Rochelle has been an active clinical researcher in cardiothoracic patient care for over two decades and was the first Australian nurse to be awarded a Biomedical Scholarship from the NHMRC to undertake her PhD. Studies for her PhD investigated the trajectory of pulmonary dysfunction in adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Rochelle has a particular interest in the trajectory of patient recovery, practice patterns in acute and critical care and predictors of readmission. Rochelle is the clinical representative for the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS) Steering Committee and Quality Committee. She has published in leading cardiothoracic journals including Circulation, The European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, Chest, the European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, Heart & Lung and the American Journal of Critical Care.

Rochelle’s research to date has investigated the ways in which point of care nursing practice impacts on patient safety, quality of care and the patient experience. A quantitative researcher, she has expertise in logistic and multivariate regression, repeated measures, risk prediction modelling and propensity analyses. Rochelle has a keen interest in reducing unnecessary variation in patient recovery by investigating modifiable risk factors that prevent wellness, improving patient participation in care and testing interventions to optimise patient outcome. In addition to supervising higher degree and Honours students, to date Rochelle has had the privilege of constant clinical engagement during her career, which has enabled her to mentor numerous clinicians from a variety of disciplines in understanding, generating and translating evidence into practice. She is passionate about mentoring the next generation of clinical nursing researchers.
