PROFILE

Ms Kirsty Freeman

Started at UWA: 2018

Kirsty is passionate about the use of simulation in healthcare to improve human performance, and ultimately patient outcomes.

With over 15 years’ experience in simulation-based education and research, Kirsty has spent the past five years building sustainable education programs for clinicians working in rural and remote environments. Her strong leadership skills, and ability to manage and motivate teams has led to Kirsty being invited to take on several leadership roles within the international healthcare simulation community, including Planning Chair for the International Meeting for Simulation.

Having grown up in rural Western Australia, it is such a privilege to give back, taking simulation-based education to the bush, to the rural and remote clinicians who dedicate themselves to caring for their communities.Ms Kirsty J Freeman, MHPE, PhD (c)
