This month we spoke to Julie-Anne Whittaker, UQ Health Care Nurse Practitioner at Aveo Durack.
How long have you been working with UQ Health Care at the St Lucia Clinic?
Since July 2012
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day can include visiting residents with acute health concerns and prescribing a treatment plan, reviewing residents who have been unwell to ensure they are responding to treatment, reviewing healthy residents monthly as part of a general check-up and arranging geriatrician reviews via telehealth. Providing end of life care to residents is an important part of my role to ensure residents remain comfortable and family are supported during this difficult time.
