Biographical details

Associate Professor Murray Fisher is Acting Associate Dean (Research) (July 2014 – June 2015) at Sydney Nursing School and Scholar in Residence at Royal Rehab, Sydney, a rehabilitation and disability service provider that supplies inpatient and community-based disability and rehabilitation services. He has worked predominantly in adult intensive care and coronary care nursing and has extensive experience in nursing education. His research interests include rehabilitation nursing practice, health outcomes in chronic illness, and gender and men’s health. The latter focus commenced during his PhD on 'Masculinities and men in nursing: an exploratory and life history study’. He has made major contributions to education research by developing and validating an instrument that measures an individual’s readiness for self-directed learning, which is used worldwide (including in cross-disciplinary settings such as medicine and physiotherapy) and has been translated into several languages. He is past Associate Dean Academic (2006-2008), inaugural Director of Pre-Registration Programs (2008-2012), and Acting Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching) (2009) at Sydney Nursing School. He has played a major leadership role in the development of academic programs at the faculty. As Director of Pre-registration Programs, he and the Associate Dean L&T, led the university’s and Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council’s accreditation process for the Masters of Nursing and Bachelor of Nursing (Advanced Studies) courses. AsAssociate Dean (Academic), he led strategy and operations during a major change in the faculty. He played an integral leadership role in the development and implementation of the Master of Nursing (Graduate Entry Pre Registration) program at the University of Sydney and assisted in the development of the Bachelor of Nursing (Post-registration) program, which is offered in Singapore. He has been and is an active participant in manyof the university’s and the faculty’s governance committees and continues to teach at the faculty, specialising in research methods and health assessment.

Research interests

Associate Professor Fisher conducts research in rehabilitation nursing practice, health outcomes in chronic illness, and gender (masculinities) and men’s health. He collaborates with Dr Julie Pryor at Royal Rehab on several grant-funded projects These include a study (funded by an Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) Development Grant) examining the reconstruction of masculinity in men with spinal cord injury (SCI). He says, “we are exploring the question of how men (who form ~80% of SCI cases, typically reflecting risk-taking behaviours) see themselves and reconstruct their masculinity after experiencing a catastrophic event leading to permanent physical disability”.

Rehabilitation nursing practice research (with Dr Pryor) includes two projects (funded by the Slater and Gordon Health Projects and Research Fund). The first, a survey of specialised SCI units across Australia and New Zealand, aims to identify common and unique neurogenic bowel management practices between institutions (asthere is no national standard), including those requiring further research. The second project is a narrative study documenting SCI patients’ experiences and challenges in accessing bowel care (especially those living alone or away from major cities).

Additional work with Dr Pryor and the Austrailian Rehabilitation Outcomes Centre (AROC) include: (a) examining the national rehabilitation outcomes for bladder, bowel and toileting functional independent measures; and (b) a pilot study (Medibank Health Research Fund grant) on introducing a rehabilitation experience questionnaire nationally.

Associate Professor Fisher is part of a successful Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Tender on theReview of the Registered Nurse Competency Standards. This national collobaration includes researchers and members of the executive of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation, Health Care Consumers Association ACT, Aged and Community Services Australia, and the Australian College of Nursing, who are collectively reviewing the current competency standards for nursing clinical practice around Australia.
