Biography

Professor Andrea Driscoll has appointments with the Quality and Patient Safety Strategic Research Centre in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, an honorary appointment at Monash University and as a heart failure nurse practitioner at Austin Health. Since commencing my PhD, I have consecutively held four Category 1 fellowships to support my research in cardiovascular disease. I am an international leader in redesigning systems of care and improving evidence-based practice in patients with cardiovascular disease to reduce disparities in health care. I have an established program of research focussing on heart failure, acute and chronic cardiovascular disease, nurse practitioner, workforce, critical care and chronic disease management. I have received several prestigious national and international awards for my research. I am currently an international fellow of American Heart Association, fellow of Australian College of Nurse Practitioners and fellow of Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand in recognition of my contributions to cardiovascular nursing through practice, research, and education. I was an executive committee member of the Cardiovascular Nursing Council of Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand for 10 years. I currently have a ministerial appointment with the Department of Health Complaints Commission Council. I have previously held a ministerial appointment to develop and implement the role of Nurse Practitioners within Victoria and past Board Director of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
