Additionally, she organized, coordinated and facilitated the annual Anaesthetic Study Day for all anaesthetists, theatre staff and ED staff within the Midwest. As the Clinical Nurse responsible for sterile services WACHS, she wrote and upgraded policies and procedures in preparation for the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards Audit 2012 and implemented new systems of work to ensure compliance with the AS/NZS 4187:2003 (sterile services).
She was commended by the auditors for the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards Audit 2012, for the quality initiatives implemented over an 8-month period. This also included providing training for sterile services staff at all levels.

Local developments within WACHS (expansion of ED and creation of the region’s first ICU department), necessitates the upskilling of all healthcare professions. She therefore has a keen interest in networking with, and learning from, experts/leaders within her clinical and academic environments, with the intention of providing high quality training and education to the critical care community within the Midwest Region.
