Getting to know you – meet Jess McDonald

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 from Jess McDonald from Launceston General Hospital and the RCH.

“I am a Paediatric Emergency Physician & clinical lead for paediatrics in the Emergency Department at the Launceston General Hospital. We are a busy mixed, regional Emergency Department supported by an inpatient paediatric unit, caring together for sick Children in Northern Tasmania. I am passionate about improving the early recognition of deterioration & paediatric sepsis. Our department has recently commenced trial of the Tasmanian paediatric sepsis pathway & we look forward to expanding our involvement in paediatric research projects.  I also work part-time in ED at RCH Melbourne”
