Professor Sheree Smith is an internationally recognised researcher in respiratory care and leads a program of acute care and primary health services research. Professor Smith holds the following degrees and certificates: PhD [Public Health, Queensland University of Technology (QUT)]; Master of Social Planning and Development (Anthropology and Sociology, University of Queensland); Postgraduate Certificate in Health Economics (University of Aberdeen); Bachelor of Nursing (QUT); and a Postgraduate Cardiothoracic Nursing Certificate. Sheree has received national and international research awards including the inaugural Co-operative Research Centre for Asthma and Asthma Australia PhD top-up scholarship and the first international Post-doctoral Capability Bursary to the University of Oxford’s Department of Primary Health Care and Centre for Evidence Based Medicine. Sheree was awarded the Millennium Bursary from the Worshipful Company of Curriers for COPD intermediate care research whilst working at St Mary’s Hospital, Department of Respiratory Infection and Medicine’s Imperial Clinical Respiratory Research Unit. In 2010, Professor Smith completed a bespoke project for the UK’s National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) and she developed organisational models for NHS health care trusts to improve the completion of NIHR portfolio studies and enhance the capacity and capability of research support staff. These models have been implemented across various hospital and health care services in England.
Professor Smith is a member of four global respiratory, sleep and critical care organisations; Thoracic Society of Australia & New Zealand (TSANZ), Asia Pacific Society of Respirology (APSR), European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the American Thoracic Society (ATS). She is a member of the ERS College of Experts and the ATS nursing assembly who identified research priorities for Lung Health, Sleep and Critical Care. Sheree was awarded Fellow of the American Thoracic Society in 2021 and was the first Australian nurse to receive this award.
Professor Smith continues as a member for NHMRC and MRFF panels. Sheree reviews grant and fellowship applications for numerous funding bodies across the globe such as NIHR (UK), Asthma (UK), Medical Research Foundation (UK), European Science Foundation and the Portuguese Agency for Science and Technology Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P. (FCT). Sheree has held an Imperial College London Visiting Professorship. Professor Smith was an external advisory board member of NIHR North-West London’s Collaborative Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC), a Healthcare Prioritisation panel member for the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council UK and the non-medical chair of the NSW Ministry of Health’s Agency for Clinical Innovation Respiratory Network (ACI).

The overarching domains of my research are health behaviour and non-pharmacological interventions associated with lung, sleep and heart health and my current research are in the areas of:

  • Infectious disease including long Covid and mask fit studies
  • Health technology
  • Respiratory health care/service delivery and redesign that incorporates co-morbid conditions that contribute to breathlessness
  • Respiratory Health and multi-morbidity including psychological distress and pain
  • Patient reported outcome and experience methods and measurement

The high standard of this work has resulted in the establishment and maintenance of local, national and international collaborations, published manuscripts, invited plenary lectures and presentations at international scientific meetings, and as an invited reviewer for a large number of national and international granting bodies and membership of NHMRC panels.

I’m an experienced academic and I’ve enthusiastically invested time and energy into my teaching. I incorporate evidence-based approaches to my teaching and learning strategies. The curriculums I develop are underpinned with a learner centred approach as an integral part of adult participatory education. I’ve held university academic leadership positions and have been responsible for post graduate programs and units. These skills are employed in supporting my higher degree students (honours, masters and PhD) to achieve their ultimate goal of obtaining their degree and to become confident independent researchers.
