Research interests

Deborah's career began by nursing babies but soon moved to a research focus which began with studies of the development of preterm and term babies using evoked responses to auditory, visual and somato-sensory stimuli. Her interest in clinical outcomes and the evidence for medicine and its application lead her to be the inaugural coordinator of the Australian and New Zealand Neonatal Network. After establishing this unique collaboration her research intereste include audit and feedback, and what makes a clinical network successful. Her doctoral study is in perinatal epidemiology.
