Biography

Career summary – Charlene Thornton is a Clinical Epidemiologist and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Western Sydney. Charlene was awarded her PhD in 2010 and previous to this she has worked at the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre and the University of Western Sydney as an epidemiologist. Charlene had an 18year clinical career in midwifery prior to her career in research as a Clinical Midwifery Specialist in the High Dependency Unit at Royal Prince Alfred Women and Babies.

Research support – CIE Thornton has been awarded two International Research Support grants ($16 000) from the University of Western Sydney, A research grant from Baxter Healthcare ($17 000) and an APA grant from the University of Sydney ($21 000). In total CI has received 8 research and travel grants.

Contribution to field of research- CIE Thornton has published or had accepted for publication 34 papers in peer-reviewed journals. CIE’s research has made a significant contribution to the body of knowledge about maternal care during high risk pregnancy and short and long term maternal health implications. Her work with Professor Hennessy (CIA) examining the effect of intravenous fluid administration to women with hypertension during pregnancy resulted in province wide policy change in British Columbia Canada. Dr Thornton’s work with Professor Hennessy (CIA) and Dr Makris (CIB) examining the effect of non-steroidal administration to hypertensive post-partum women has resulted in policy change in regard to the use of NSAIDs worldwide in regard to this high risk population.

Collaborations - CIE has strong collaborations with CIA Hennessy and CIB Makris and together they have published 25 peer reviewed papers.  Internationally CIE has worked closely with obstetric units in Vancouver Canada and is a member of the Cochrane Neonatal, IPD Methods and Breast Cancer groups. Nationally CIE has strong collaborations with the University of Sydney and the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre.

Community engagement and participation- CIE worked with community groups with the Greater Western Sydney Area as a medical student advisor for research projects conducted within the community setting as a component of the MBBS program.

Professional involvement - CIE is a member of the Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand, the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy and the International Society of Obstetric Medicine.

International standing- CIE has given papers at 16 conferences and seminars since 2000 both nationally and internationally. She has been an invited speaker on 6 occasions and a panel chair at a national conference.

Supervision and mentoring- CIE currently co-supervises 4 higher degree students (1 Masters Honours and 3 PhD) and two Honours students.

NHMRC and Peer review involvement- CIE has reviewed grants for the NHMRC. CIE is a regular reviewer for Midwifery and Pregnancy Hypertension.
