Since becoming a Registered Nurse Rochelle has been an active clinical researcher in cardiothoracic patient care. With a focus on exploring patients' recovery trajectory, Rochelle's research to date has investigated the ways in which point of care nursing practice impacts on patient safety, quality of care and the patient experience. A quantitative researchers, Rochelle has expertise in logistic and multivariate regression, repeated measures, risk prediction modelling and propensity analyses. Rochelle has a keen interest in reducing unnecessary variation in patient recovery by investigating modifiable risk factors that prevent wellness, improving patient participation in care and testing interventions to optimise patient outcome. In addition to supervising higher degree and Honours students, to date Rochelle has had the priviledge of constant clinical engagement during her career which has enabled her to mentor numerous clinicians from a variety of disciplines in understanding, generating and translating evidence into practice. She is passionate about mentoring the next generation of clinical nursing researchers.Read more on Rochelle's profile
The key theme in Rochelle's program of research is patient recovery trajectory. Investigating the recovery trajectory generates evidence to benchmark nursing practice and to identify points of variation in care. While many patients recover according to an expected trajectory, for some there are minor or major deviations in recovery. Rochelle has a keen interest in reducing unnecessary variation in patient recovery with a view to developing and testing interventions to optimise patient outcome. The aims of her program of research are to identify risk factors that influence recovery trajectory, to explore factors associated with variability in expected recovery pathways and to explore pre-emptive strategies to reduce variation in care.
Rochelle has been an active clinical researcher in cardiothoracic patient care for over 2 decades with a particular interest in practice patterns in acute and critical care. Her work is primarily focused on the immediate postoperative management of cardiac surgical and lung cancer candidates and particular areas of interest include pulmonary dysfunction, pain, haemodynamic monitoring and thoracostomy tube management. Current and future research projects will investigate ways in which nursing practice is influenced by system, process or patient problems in terms of impact on patient safety, quality of care and the patient experience during their recovery trajectory. A quantitative researcher, Rochelle has expertise in logistic and multivariate regression, repeated measures, risk prediction modelling and propensity analyses.
