Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Dr Janet Kelly is a nurse researcher and course coordinator focused on improving health care and outcomes for and with Aboriginal people. Over the last ten years she has co-designed Aboriginal patient journey mapping tools to identify barriers and enablers, gaps and strategies in care. These ground up tools are flexible and adaptable, and suitable for diverse journey types. They are increasing being used for quality improvement, reflective practice, education and training in renal care, cardiac care, nursing, midwifery and medicine. In 2019 Dr Kelly began leading the aKction – Aboriginal Kidney Care Together – Improving Outcomes Now Project, funded through Health Translation SA. This implementation project brings together Aboriginal kidney patients and their families, health professionals, academics, researchers and other key stakeholders to identify strengths and gaps and improve care.
Janet began her nursing career at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and then practiced midwifery, child and youth health, adolescent health, Aboriginal, women's and sexual health care across a range of urban and regional settings. Her PhD focused on Moving Forward Together in Aboriginal Women's Health, and her Master of Nursing explored the role of sexual health nurses working with young Aboriginal women in urban areas. As part of her studies, Janet co-designed a culturally respectful participatory action research approach with Aboriginal community women that involves repeated cycles of Look & Listen, Think and Discuss, and Take Action Together. This approach continues to underpin her collaborative work.
