Emily’s previous experience as a surgical assistant to many Brisbane surgeons, as well as time spent in urological robotic surgery and skin cancer management has enabled her to develop comprehensive perioperative healthcare skills, including pre-operative assessment, intraoperative surgical assisting, post-operative care planning, education, wound care, pain management, and outpatient follow-ups.

“I am passionate about delivering culturally safe care that empowers patients and their caregivers. I aim to contribute to improved patient experiences, clinical outcomes – and bridgethe gap between specialty practice and advanced nursing practice,” she says.
