Research Fellow

Kathy has a background in nursing and qualifications in psychology, government, health policy and public health. She is passionate about equitable access to health services and translation of evidence into health policy and practice.

As part of the Melanoma Centre for Research Excellence program, she will be involved in a range of projects to improve the evidence base around unmet needs for people with melanoma. This work will include looking at the feasibility of embedding the collection of patient-reported outcomes and experiences in routine clinical practice, to better inform and guide patient treatment.
