Biographical details

Robyn Gallagher is the Professor of Nursing at Sydney Nursing School based at the Charles Perkins Centre and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Technology, Sydney. Professor Gallagher’s clinical and academic career focusses on understanding and supporting patients who have cardiovascular disease throughout their recovery, encouraging and enabling good self-management and reducing their risk of future cardiovascular events through secondary prevention. She has led weight loss and physical activity intervention programs for overweight and obese patients with coronary heart disease or diabetes andhas extensive experience in establishing multidisciplinary research teams. Her work with these teams has been internationally recognised, won awards and altered clinical practice leading to significant changes in policy. She is an experienced academic and research degree supervisor and was previously Director of Research Students at the University of Technology, Sydney, where she received the Postgraduate Supervision Award for Excellence. She has contributed to a number of Policy Standards and advisory documents including on the implementation and impact of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care National Labelling Recommendations (2011), which the Federal Department of Health and Aging adopted. Professor Gallagher is elected Chair of the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand Cardiovascular Nursing Council and Fellow of the American Heart Association Cardiovascular Nursing Council.

Research interests

Professor Gallagher’s research aims to help patients to recover and lead healthier lives after admission to hospital for heart problems such as heart attack, cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure. Her work helps patients to reduce their risk of having further heart events, through cardiac rehabilitation, exercise and physical activity, medications, and weight management. Professor Gallagher’s research specifically addresses the factors that influence patients’ ability to self-manage, including cognition and health literacy and the difficulties patients face in coming to terms with having heart disease and the changes they need to make. Her research includes a trial of telehealth for women recovering from heart attack and heart surgery. In recognition that nurses are role models and provide the bulk of healthcare, she is studying nurses’ health and health behaviours in ‘Fit for the Future: 5000’, the largest nurses’ study conducted in Australia.

Teaching and supervision

Professor Gallagher’s teaching career includes cardiovascular and chronic disease subjects as well as evidence-based practice and research methods. She has supervised PhD (2), Masters by Research (8) and Honours (5) students to completion and has won an award for the quality of her supervision. She currently supervises Phd students (4) and cosupervises (4) and Honours student (2) and is a very experienced examiner.
