Personal profile

Vincent’s experience, over 40 years in nursing in aged care, hospital administration, education and clinical nursing in medical, surgical, critical care, operating theatre settings in both urban and rural areas of Australia and the United Kingdom. This experiencehas provided him with a comprehensive understanding of the role nurses and healthcare workers engage in delivering health care. 20years of which were spent working in senior nursing positions in health administration and a further 10 years in aged, dementia and neurological nursing practice, informs and strengthens his work as a clinician and researcher.

Vincent has a proven track record of introducing innovation and working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams in NSW health and aged care, his work published in a number of health and research journals.

In his current position with the Mid North Coast Health District of New South Wales and Parkinson’s NSW, Vincent works as a Parkinson’s Clinical Nurse Consultant caring and supporting people with Parkinson’s disease across the continuum in the acute hospital, aged care and community settings. Over the last four years Vincent has been instrumental in developing services and partnerships to enhance the quality of life for people affected by Parkinson’s disease.

In 2016 Vincent was awarded with a Judith Meppem scholarship to undertake a study tour of United Kingdom, Netherlands and Northern Ireland to observe and learn about innovative and best practice in Parkinson’s disease nursing. In 2017 he was awarded a research placement at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), a not-for-profit research institute based in Sydney, Australia. These opportunities have resulted in Vincent progressing further studies, now a Charles Sturt University PhD candidate. 

The focus of his PhD research is to explore the models of Parkinson's support group leadership, what makes and creates an effective Parkinson’s support group from the perspective of people with Parkinson’s disease, caregivers and support group leaders living in rural and regional New South Wales. The study seeks to understand Parkinson’s support groups and the members who attend these groups.
