With extensive nursing experience in pediatrics, midwifery, maternal and child health and general nursing, Professor Jill Teschendorff has a strong interest in facilitating change through research and teaching. A qualified massage therapist, Jill believes that complementary health care offers nurses the opportunity to implement effective, practical care that is holistic and under the control of nurses. Her research interests are broad and they include overseas skills recognition in Australia, intercultural communication, cultural adjustments of migrant nurses and the effects of massage on post-operative pain. She is currently investigating the health beliefs that impact on the practice of massage. Jill has extensive experience in the accreditation of courses in complementary health care and was a member of the advisory committee for the Review of Guidelines for Use of Complementary Therapies in Nursing Practice for the Nurses Board of Victoria.
