“Getting to know you” – Meet Lisa Properjohn

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 Lisa Properjohn from Perth Children’s Hospital.

“I am a hospital based trained nurse from the Perth Children’s Hospital (formerly Princess Margaret Hospital) where I have worked for the past 35 years.  I have been working in the PCH Emergency Research team for over a year now under the amazing guidance of Sharon O’Brien and Meredith Borland.

I am currently involved with the Paris II study, a Toddler Fracture Cam Boot versus Above Knee Plaster Randomised Control Trial being conducted by PCH ED, the PEA Study in conjunction with the Telethon Kids Institute which is looking to develop a dynamic Antibiogram to guide empiric treatment of UTI’S in children and the PERN Pneumonia Study.

I was lucky enough to meet some of the other awesome PREDICT members in Auckland this year when I attended the BIPED Training for the upcoming BIPED study which we hope to commence this year and I look forward to attending the PREDICT members meeting being held in Perth in October.
