Personal profile

Personal profile

George has over fifteen years’ experience as a UK paramedic and clinical mentor. After leaving East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS), George went on to work as a specialist paramedic (cardiology) in the coronary care unit (CCU) at Kettering General Hospital (KGH).

George has worked at Charles Sturt University since emigrating to Australia in 2015 and has taught across all subjects within the course. George regularly facilitates interagency exercises with SES as part of the 1st year trauma subject (CLS106) and has helped support student teams training for entry to the FERNO SIM competition. George also served as manager of the Peer Tutor program at Bathurst (2018 – 2021).

George has maintained strong links with the UK and has facilitated several UK global trips to give students the opportunity to experience the international context of paramedic practice. These placements have also helped forge the development of a new recruitment pathway exclusive to Charles Sturt graduates. As a former mentor, George has a strong interest in helping prepare students to make the transition to clinical practice.

Research Interests

As part of her Masters study, George is undertaking research into promoting the effectiveness of distance education for clinical subjects.

George has been involved in several collaborative research projects, including the implementation of the ‘puppet master’ online practical sessions which won the SBMS award for Innovation and Creativity (2020) and was presented at the UK College of Paramedics inaugural International Education Conference (2020). She was also part of the Rural Inter Professional Education research team investigating the effectiveness of handovers between students from different healthcare disciplines (paramedic, nursing and medical students).

George is actively engaged in the supervision of Dare to Know Student Paramedic Research Scholarship students which has resulted in a number of research outputs. She has also been involved with editing several book chapters in the ‘Fundamentals of Paramedic Practice’ and has co-written one of the book chapters in the ‘Clinical Cases in Paramedicine’ textbook (2021).
