Aged Care / Dementia Newcastle
Kim holds the position of Conjoint Professor in the School of Nursing and Midwifery. She was awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 1993 and studied restraint minimisation practices in dementia-specific units across the globe. Her qualifications and extensive experience are in the field of social gerontology and dementia. Kim’s interests include collaborative and transformative practice development as a means of implementing and evaluating person-centred approaches to care practice - and particularly, the importance of gathering rigorous practice-based evidence with which to inform evidence-based practice during all research ventures. Kim also has considerable knowledge and experience using quality of life tools to develop better practice in the care of people living with dementia. Kim completed a PhD in 2001 which required continual observation over a period of one year in the clinical field with people with dementia.
