Biography

Biography

Dr John Rolley, is a Senior Lecturer of Nursing at Deakin University, School of Nursing and Midwifery. In addition to undergraduate and postgraduate learning and teaching, John has an active research profile in two main areas: Interventional cardiovascular nursing and education. John’s main clinical focus has been critical care with particular interest in cardiovascular health. However, experiences in community health and social welfare have broadened that focus to include an emphasis in continuity in chronic disease management and prevention from a patient-journey viewpoint. In 2009, John completed a PhD with Curtin University. This program of research included patient, carers and clinicians with the aim of improving outcomes for people undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions. A significant output was a set of nursing clinical practice guidelines. John is currently extending his guidelines work for the development of cardiac catherisation laboratory specific guidelines and competencies using similar methods developed during the PhD as well as pursuing research into the impact of chronic illness on carers. In addition, John is working with a group of educators investigating problem based learning approaches in postgraduate nursing clinical education
