Her current projects include evaluating the Gentle Persuasive Approaches eLearning Program for acute care clinical staff and nursing students.

Clinical assessment procedures will be reviewed. A range of clinical examples, case studies, and research literature will be discussed. There will be opportunity to ask questions and debate best practice strategies.
