Kate is passionate about ensuring older people are supported by highly skilled, compassionate and collaborative staff. As Group Manager of Education, Clinical Care and Engagement at Southern Cross Care, Kate oversees organisational training initiatives, graduate nursing programs, onsite clinical and quality supports and resident satisfaction.
Her Wound Champion Program led to a 60% reduction in pressure injuries and enhanced quality of life for countless residents. Kate is building the aged care workforce of the future by driving excellence in clinical care. There are also many specific examples of tangible resident benefits, particularly for complex wounds that would have been outsourced to external wound care providers before Kate implemented the Wound Champions Program.
