Rob is Adjunct Professor University of Tasmania, visiting Professor Tehran University of Medical Sciences and previously visiting professor with Narh-Bita University, Ghana and Clinical Associate Professor with the Australian Catholic University, Brisbane, Australia.
Rob's main research interest is seeing research being utilized at a clinical level where nurses, midwives, nurse specialists and other Allied Health Professionals are equipped with the essential skills and knowledge to aid this process. Rob has shared and disseminated his work on nursing and practice development all over the world: Australia, United States of America, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Iran, Malta, Croatia and United Kingdom are to name but a few.
Rob’s work and research focus broadly around three key areas; practice and professional development, healthcare governance [i.e. clinical governance and patient safety] and evidence-informed practice. Rob has published books and articles, offered numerous conference keynote presentations and provides consultancy and workshops to audiences on topics and research associated with his experience.
