As a medical doctor employed by the Department of Health since 2007 working in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Whilst finding immense sense of purpose in the type of work she was engaged in, there has always been a background observation regarding the ramifications of a reductionist outlook affecting the spheres of patient care. Patients are often mechanistically managed; being reduced to their full blood count results or their Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) images. There is a tendency to explain through analysis and reduction rather than by cohesive synthesis and integration. It is primarily for these reasons; that gave rise to an innate resonance towards exploring the System Dynamics (SD) modality of thinking which seeks to better appreciate the overall grander schemata of phenomena in all its subtle and manifest ways .Over the years with several hospital related challenges mounting, be they poor resource allocation or declining numbers in human resources, there has been an inquiry towards a more robust, scientific manner to identify blind spots and design effective interventions. Hence the researcher has embarked on this route of being a research practitioner exploring the domain of System Dynamics in Healthcare. The researcher aims to demonstrate that in a seemingly complex, challenge- ridden setting of a large scale hospital setting; breakthrough interventions can be uncovered when the appropriate heuristic is applied. This aim is propelled by unified objectives of tying together the interconnected, non-linear, whole-system blueprint of System Dynamics to unlock potential solutions.
In Participatory Action Research, the emphasis is on ownership in improving one’s own working environment rather than providing generalisations around issues concerning healthcare and invites towards self-reflection and personal transformation. This resonates with systems-as-cause-thinking whereby an active role in taking responsibility is stressed upon instead of seeking to allocate blame to other sources. Incorporating Theory U into the journey of personal transformation is considered critical for the researcher to practice medicine from a holistic paradigm and sense of purpose that extended beyond the linear boundaries of healthcare. Overall, the researcher seeks to find emergent opportunities for transformation instead of being weighed down by structural failures of the healthcare system. The researcher aims to highlight the possibilities of achieving gains of cultivating personal and professional growth, leading to individual and organisational successes in a large scale, complex healthcare setting.

Editor-in-Chief - Health Care for Women International
I am a Professor Emerita of Gerontology at UNC Wilmington where I founded their gerontology programs. I am also the Editor-in-Chief of the scholarly journal, Health Care for Women International. In both roles I mentor others to conduct research which informs practice. I aim to help others make a positive difference in their local communities and in the global world of scholars, by offering workshop tips for publishing success. I am most proud of my research about the impact of combat on aging and the family and my work about caregiving networks in retirement communities. I have also published work predicting the cross-cultural status of older adults, mentoring processes, how older adults respond to natural disasters, and how gender predicts access to health care and decisions made about treatment. I respect all attempts to understand how gender, ethnicity and social class impact the life course.
