Liz has worked closely with physiotherapists to develop rehabilitation and fall prevention exercise programs to enable patients to leave hospital and return home. She has extensive experience and knowledge of anatomical function, proprioception, muscular and joint function, physical assessment and the implementation of movements to accommodate physical limitations.
Before working as a Nurse Educator, she worked for 10 years as a registered nurse in the acute health sector in a wide range of health specialities, and as a laboratory technician in the autoimmune and blood transfusion laboratories at the Institute of Clinical Pathology and Medical Research at Westmead Hospital. This gave her a good knowledge of the disease processes and medical treatments for the body.
