Recipient of the Ian Maddocks Guest Lecture 2017

Dr Beth Russell, Palliative Care Physician, Centre For Palliative Care

Dr Russell is a palliative care physician with a passion for good research. Her clinical role is in inpatient palliative care at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. Her research interests are diverse and include mixed methods projects investigating the needs and experiences of people caring for patients living longer with malignant glioma, novel approaches to the management of peripheral oedema and developing an evidence-based clinical tool for palliative care triage. She was raised and trained in Adelaide and now calls Melbourne home, but will remain forever loyal to South Australian shiraz.

The recipient of the Ian Maddocks Guest Lecture is considered to be the best submission by an author under the age of 40 who is engaged in the study or delivery of palliative care in any of its component disciplines. Congratulations Beth!
