Surgery - Christine Campbell


I am a qualified nurse with a strong nursing background, having worked in diverse hospitals and settings across Australia, including; palliative care, renal dialysis, detention services, indigenous community health, infectious diseases, oncology and rural/remote nursing.

Research Focus

I co-ordinate and manage the general and colorectal surgery databases for Barwon Health’s Surgical Audit and Risk Management Program and Rural Procedural Audit Steering Committee. I prepare annual audit reports for colorectal and other specific general surgical procedures. Often, I work with the Professor of Surgery, Surgical Consultants and Registrars and other surgical staff assisting them by providing surgical data for various audits and research projects.
