Rosemarie Boland

 

Dr Rosemarie Boland is a postdoctoral researcher, senior lecturer, neonatal nurse and midwife with a nursing career spanning 30 years. She completed her PhD in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Melbourne in 2014, investigating risk factors for mortality in very preterm babies born in non-tertiary maternity hospitals in Victoria.

She is now leading a five-year postdoctoral program of research aimed at improving outcomes for these babies, supported by a Career Development Award from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. Her research investigating the association between birthplace, mortality, and serious morbidity in very preterm babies has attracted national and international attention. She has been the invited speaker at international and national conferences and has given platform presentations at international conferences in North America and Europe. She has published in international peer reviewed journals and is a peer reviewer for local and international perinatal journals. Rosemarie has received several awards and prizes for her research, including a Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand (PSANZ) New Investigator Award, PSANZ Travel Grant, Australian College of Neonatal Nurses/Parker Healthcare travel award and Murdoch Children's Research Institute Early-Mid Research Career award. Rosemarie has held the position as statewide perinatal educator with the Paediatric Infant Perinatal Emergency Retrieval Service since 2000. She has extensive experience in developing and facilitating education programs for medical, nursing, midwifery and paramedic healthcare providers at undergraduate and post-graduate level and in a variety of healthcare settings. She has developed curriculum for University programs, clinical practice guidelines for Ambulance Victoria and has considerable expertise in translating neonatal resuscitation research into clinical practice. She is the content and educational developer of the Victorian Newborn Resuscitation Project: NeoResus. NeoResus is taught throughout Victoria, Tasmania, and Queensland.
