Dr. Anne Walsh has qualifications in nursing, psychology and health promotion. She had been involved in nursing for over 30 years and research for more than 10 years; completing her PhD in 2007. She was awarded a Queensland University of Technology “Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award” in 2008 for her PhD titled “Parents’ management of childhood fever”.

Anne’s research and scholarly interests relate to both evidence-based health behaviours and health care in the areas of paediatrics, child health and parenting; and in nursing roles, responsibilities and practice changes, e.g., general practice nurses.

She is experienced in instrument development and developing, implementing and evaluating behaviour change programs using the Theory of Planned Behaviour. Her research has led to practice change in paediatric fever management, a book chapter and consultancies in this area. As an early career researcher she has been awarded both university and external grants to further her research.
