Biography

Paul Bennett, RN, PhD, MHSM, GCert (App Stats) is an Honorary Professor in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Deakin University. Paul is currently a research lead in the School of Medicine at Stanford University, USA. Paul's most recent positions were the Foundation Chair and Professor in Translational Nursing at Western Health - Deakin University Partnership, Deputy Coordinator of the School of Nursing and Midwifery Higher Degrees Program and Alfred Deakin Postgraduate Research Fellow at the Monash Health - Deakin University Centre of Nursing Research.

Paul's research teams focus on strategies to improve the quality of life of people with chronic and end stage kidney disease using self-management techniques, resistance and aerobic exercise, laughter therapy, home dialysis, e-learning, communication techniques, imagery, and workforce models. Paul's recent ground-breaking research, demonstrating the effect of exercise for people with end stage kidney disease, has received international acclaim through high impact factor publications, social media, television and radio, resulting in the increased use of exercise tools in dialysis units throughout the world.

Paul was the Foundation Editor-in-Chief of the Renal Society of Australasia Journal (2005-2015), Foundation Chair of the Kidney Health Australia Nursing Grants Program and Foundation Co-Chair of the Joanna Briggs Evidenced Based Renal Node. Paul was a Co-Chair on the Home Haemodialysis Global Forum who developed an internationally recognised web-based tool box to support home dialysis therapies in developing areas of the world.

Paul actively supervises higher degree students (PhD, Masters, Honours). Paul has expertise in both quantitative and qualitative methods, in particular, questionnaire validity and reliability testing, stepped-wedge randomised control trials, screening tool development and critical ethnography. In the past 10 years Paul has been the recipient of over $1m in research funding, numerous industry and academic awards, presented over 200 conference presentations and published over 100 journal articles, book chapters and other scholarly publications.
