Professor Alison Kitson - Vice-President & Executive Dean
College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Flinders University (2018).

Alison was the former Dean of Nursing and Head of School at the University of Adelaide and is now a University Titleholder. She is an Associate Fellow of Green Templeton College, University of Oxford in the UK. Before coming to Australia Alison held a number of strategic leadership and executive positions in one of the world’s largest professional organisations for nursing, the Royal College of Nursing of the United Kingdom.

Her research over the last 20 years has focused on Knowledge Translation (KT) activity relating to better understanding the mechanisms that enable new knowledge (in the forms of guidelines or innovations in practice such as new roles) to be introduced into clinical practice. Alison is internationally recognised for her work in this area, and in particular as the originator of one of the most widely cited and used KT frameworks, the Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services (PARIHS) Framework.

In 2015 she was elected to the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences for her work in knowledge translation
