Philip Darbyshire


Professor Philip Darbyshire is internationally recognised as a leader in nursing and healthcare research and service development. The Australasian College of Health Service Management called Philip: “the ‘go-to’ person for hospitals and healthcare organisations who want research and evidence-based practice demystified and moved out of the ‘too-hard basket’ and into the hearts and minds of clinicians who will use it make a real difference”. For 13 years, he led one of Australia’s most successful practice-based research departments at Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide, described by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards as, an “example of excellence in research leadership”. Philip is a professor of Nursing at Monash University and an adjunct professor at the University of Western Sydney.
