Biographical details

Moira is a registered nurse and lecturer at Sydney Nursing School, with teaching interests in population/public health areas, health care systems and health policy. She is a PhD candidate at the School of Public Health (Menzies Centre for Health Policy), University of Sydney. Moira has extensive clinical, research and education experience. Her clinical focus in acute care (general intensive care and neuro trauma) has evolved with a specific interest in the upstream drivers of health and a greater focus on public health issues. A broad range of clinical and education experience in the UK, NSW, Northern Territory, remote Queensland and recently the Western Pacific region has diversified Moira’s understanding of public health issues in the contemporary and developing context. Moira has lectured in undergraduate and postgraduate nursing courses at the University of Sydney and Charles Darwin University, Northern Territory. From early 2011, her appointment as Research Associate at Menzies Centre for Health Policy at Sydney University on the Vision Hearing Project (NHMRC) provided collaboration opportunities with Vison Australia and experience with mixed methods and qualitative research. She commenced her current role as lecturer at Sydney Nursing School in 2016.

Research interests

Moira has specific interests in public health, health policy, primary health care and social capital. She has been involved in mixed methods research through the Vision-Hearing project and has a particular interest in the theory of social capital and its application in ageing and chronic disease. Her doctoral research explores the use of social capital as a framework to address the structural and cognitive dimensions of dual sensory impairment in the older Australian population and their families.

Moira is currently undertaking a higher research degree (HDR) at Menzies Centre for Health Policy, Sydney School of Public Health, University of Sydney. Her thesis focuses on social capital as a framework to address the structural and cognitive dimensions of dual sensory loss on families and significant others.
