Clinical Research Fellow
Heather Reynolds qualified as a registered nurse in 1984 and has a clinical background in intensive care and anaesthetic nursing. She has worked in a research role at Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine since 2007 and completed PhD studies at Griffith University in 2014. Her particular intravascular access interest is dressing and securement of peripheral arterial catheters in adults to prevent catheter failure, and she is continuing her doctoral work which investigated the use of the latest technologies, incorporating the feasibility of further extensive testing of new techniques. Her research foci are clinical and cost effectiveness of dressing and securement methods, staff and patient preferences, and translation of new research knowledge into clinical practice.
