Dr Olivia Hollingdrake is a practicing Registered Nurse, with experience across a variety of inpatient, outpatient and community settings both locally and abroad. Olivia has worked with people living with a range of conditions including cancer, HIV, viral hepatitis and inherited bleeding disorders. Olivia’s doctoral research in Public Health (UQ) used qualitative methods to examine how best to support people living with HIV, a complex and stigmatised chronic condition, to self-manage health and achieve optimal quality of life. Olivia’s research is grounded in community participation, underpinned by the principle that those living with health conditions must be involved in the development of research and policy that affects them. Olivia’s research, teaching and practice interests align with a national and international agenda that seeks to address the social determinants of health and capitalise on personal, community and health service resources to achieve optimal health outcomes for all.
