Theresa Green is a Professor in the School of Nursing, Faculty of Health & Biomedical Sciences at University of Queensland (UQ). She currently holds a Conjoint Professor of Rehabilitation Nursing Research position with UQ and the Metro North Hospital & Health Service’s Surgical Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS) facility in Brisbane Australia. She has an extensive background in acute clinical nursing, with expertise in neuroscience nursing and nursing management. Prior to relocating to Australia, Theresa was actively involved in the development of the Calgary Stroke Program, Canadian Best Practices in Stroke Care Clinical Practice Guidelines and had an instrumental role in the development of Accreditation Canada’s Stroke Certification program. She has participated in accreditation surveys of stroke centres in Canada, focused on stroke services in acute care environments and rehabilitation settings (stand-alone and integrated service models).
Theresa’s program of research currently includes examination of transitions of patients and families living with stroke across the healthcare and service continuum with a primary focus on post-acute transitional care (rehabilitation and home) and (self)-management. Outcomes to be assessed in her program of rehabilitation research will include: 1) health outcomes of adults, 2) health outcomes of family caregivers, 3) efficiency and access to care and services, and 5) preferences, satisfaction, and practices of patients, family, and healthcare providers in the delivery and receipt of evidence-informed health services.
