Personal profile

Personal profile

Julian has national and international standing in the discipline of child and family health nursing in research that attends to health inequities experienced by children and young people. Her research focusses on understanding the individual and systemic barriers for the nursing and interdisciplinary workforce tasked with promoting the wellbeing of children and young people., particularly those who arenavigating intersections of race, gender and class and those at risk of, or exposed to child maltreatment. Julian works with families and mothers, nurses, midwives and the interdisciplinary workforce across health, education and social welfare. Her research has subsequently moved into developing and trialling innovations to improve health and wellbeing for children. After working substantially with refugee mothers and families, and due to her increasing reputation as a culturally safe researcher,  Julian has been invited to work with children and families from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds. Having worked in clinical practice and education with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Ceduna and Adelaide (SA) and Gunnedah (NSW), Julian is committed to working collaboratively for change.
