Lecturer in Physiotherapy
Albury / Wodonga
Gordon Bevan Building Room 415

Sarah completed her physiotherapy training in Melbourne and comes to CSU with a strong clinical background, having worked in the acute care public health setting across both metropolitan and regional areas. Additional experiences in project management and Department of Health leadership roles were gained during the COVID-19 pandemic response.

The majority of Sarah’s clinical experience has centred on ICU and acute post-surgical recovery, where she has an ongoing interest in critical care acquired weakness, post-critical illness quality of life and the recovery from major surgery.

Sarah has completed a Master in Leadership (Health and Human Services) with original research examining allied health leaders’ experiences of organisational change and is interested in further investigating how allied health professionals are educated in and utilise skills in leadership.

Sarah has previously taught the acute care physiotherapy subject on a casual basis at CSU. In addition, Sarah had many years’ experience in the provision of clinical education of physiotherapy students undertaking acute care workplace learning placements.

Sarah has undertaken research examining allied health leaders’ experiences of innovation and organizational change as part of her Master of Leadership. There is potential for additional research projects to evolve from this project.

Clinically, Sarah is interested in further investigating critical care acquired weakness, post-critical illness quality of life and the longer-term recovery from major abdominal surgery and whether there are differences between rural and metropolitan populations regarding these factors.
