“Getting to know you” – new PREDICT member Joanna Cronin

Our “Getting to know you” segment ensures PREDICT members are aware of new members, their interests and areas of expertise and where they are located.  This month we introduce Joanna Cronin from Gold Coast University Hospital.

“I am currently working as a clinical nurse at the Gold Coast ED.  I have over 20 years of ED and ICU experience, both in clinical and managerial roles.

I started working as a research nurse part time last year working with Dr Shane George. My portfolio includes Kids THRIVE, VICTOR , SEARCh and RAPIDS.  I am enjoying the experience and learning each day.

I would like to continue working in paediatric research but enjoy my clinical days on the floor.  I believe by remaining part of the ED clinical team I can continue to educate staff daily and be aware of any issues with regards to clinical trials.

The paediatric research world is becoming bigger and I am privileged to be part of the wonderful research that is currently taking place.”
