Empowering the initiation of a prevention strategy to combat malaria in Papua New Guinea

Jane  Fitzpatrick

Jane Fitzpatrick

qualifications: PhD

position: Senior lecturer

Dr Fitzpatrick has a keen interest in the development of collaborative learning cultures, in particular, in capitalizing on the realms of knowledge practitioners and academics bring to the research arena. Her doctoral thesis examined how educational self-assessment contributes to the ethical-decision making processes community nurses engage in. Jane draws on a collaborative approach to research which focuses on empowerment and capacity building. This interest combined with her clinical perspective has also led to the development of an innovative project with a disadvantaged community in Port Moresby Papua New Guinea. This project involves working with members of the community and colleagues from the University of Papua New Guinea in developing an approach to health promotion which engages with issues that the people perceive to be relevant to their life experiences. This project mirrors the traditional model of dialogue within the community.
