Alison Craswell has more than 20 years clinical experience in nursing with a background in paediatrics, midwifery and neonatal nursing. She has tertiary teaching background in research in nursing and pharmacology.
Alison’s doctoral research centred around perinatal data and the influences on midwives moving from paper to computer data entry. Identification of some midwives who engaged with perinatal data entry to overcome barriers led to the development of The Theory of Beneficial Engagement.
As a Research Fellow, Alison manages the CEDRiC (Care coordination through Emergency Department, Residential Aged Care and Primary Health Collaboration) project led by Professor Marianne Wallis. CEDRiC is an innovative model of service delivery aiming to strengthen the capacity of the aged care sector to deliver high quality aged care, to improve care for older adults in the Emergency Department and improve interaction between the residential aged care facilities and both primary and secondary healthcare sectors.
