Evan is a lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Western Sydney, a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Central Venous Access and Intensive Care at Liverpool Hospital, and a Senior Research Fellow with the Centre for Health Practice Innovation, Griffith University. Evan is also a conjoint lecturer with the University of New South Wales, South West Sydney Clinical School for the faculty of Medicine where he is involved in collaborative research and teaching of both post graduate medical staff in vascular access and ultrasound and undergraduate medical students on a variety of clinical subjects. Evan is currently a PhD candidate where his thesis explores the implementation of nurse-led central venous access teams and their clinical outcomes. Evan has published over 20 papers in peer-reviewed journals on vascular access device insertion and maintenance, and has presented his research findings related to vascular access at many national and international conferences. A number of studies he has conducted in the past have required ethical approval and so he has a good understanding of the inherent requirement of conducting a study ethically and appropriately with patient welfare always at the forefront. Evan has established multiple connections, both nationally and internationally, in the intravascular research arena, and is well positioned to garner broad support and participation in the proposed OMG Study.
