Internationally acknowledged researcher in cancer care Professor Sandie McCarthy has been jointly appointed as Professor of Clinical Nursing Research for The University of Queensland’s School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work and Mater.
In this inaugural role Professor McCarthy will provide strategic leadership, bringing together the clinical needs and research priorities of UQ and Mater.
“My vision is to harness the capabilities of the Mater and UQ nursing workforces to make our joint venture an internationally recognised centre for meaningful nursing inquiry,” Professor McCarthy said.
“My experience has been that clinical credibility, the capacity to network and willingness to engage in research and education alongside nursing clinicians is the way to do this.
“UQ and Mater jointly have an impressive clinical research footprint in Brisbane.
“This is an exciting position as it can leverage the networks, resources and knowledge within that footprint to promote nursing, and interdisciplinary research, even further on the national and international stage.”
Currently University of Auckland’s Head of the School of Nursing, Professor McCarthy is a dual-registered nurse in Australia and New Zealand, and a credentialed cancer nurse in Queensland.
Professor McCarthy has significant competitive grant success and is highly skilled in translating research findings into practice with positive outcomes for patients and their families.
“My clinical area of practice is cancer nursing, specialising in chemotherapy,” Professor McCarthy said.
“My personal research program focuses on the prevention and management of the short- and long-term toxicities of cancer treatments, particularly in women and older adults.”
Professor McCarthy will start on 29 July 2019.
