Tim Schultz
Research Fellow and Postgraduate Coordinator
Adelaide Nursing School
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

My current role in Adelaide Nursing School is Research Fellow and Postgraduate Coordinator. I conduct and support research activities mainly related to quantitative methods in the Adelaide Nursing School, and manage the Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Program. My main areas of research lie in: (i) systematic reviews, (ii) health services research, (iii) patient safety research, and (iv) implementing evidence into practice. I am an interdisciplinary researcher who focusses on the role of nursing in healthcare delivery.
My research investigates how safe, effective and efficient healthcare can be delivered to patients in a complex and changing healthcare system, and I have a particular interest in determining how people with chronic diseases can receive care in the community (home) rather than hospital. My research into evidence implementation directly contributes to the Faculty’s ‘Translational Health Outcomes’ and ‘Surgical and Health Systems Innovation’ research programs, while my research on frailty is part of the Transdisciplinary CRE on Frailty and the Faculty’s Ageing, Frailty and Mobility research program. Additionally, my large body of systematic review work as a core staff of the Centre for Evidence Based Practice South Australia is integral to its continued success, and my international collaboration with Uppsala University supports the Adelaide Nursing School's program of work on the Fundamentals of Care.
I have a minor role in undergraduate teaching, leading problem-based learning and small group discovery experience classes. I conduct tutorials on quantitative research methods in a postgraduate course ‘NURSING 7030 - Undertaking nursing research: Exploring Issues in clinical practice’ and supervise students in the postgraduate course 7012HO Systematic Reviews of Research.
I was previously Technical Director at the Australian Patient Safety Foundation (2008-15)

My main areas of research lie in: (i) systematic reviews, (ii) health services research, (iii) patient safety research, and (iv) implementing evidence into practice. I am an interdisciplinary researcher who focusses on the role of nursing in healthcare delivery.

For systematic reviews (SRs), I have conducted a number of Cochrane Reviews and Joanna Briggs Institute reviews. Mostly they have been reviews of effectiveness, although a few are integrated reviews combining quantitative and qualitative research. I have also conducted umbrella SRs (what Cochrane calls ‘overviews reviews’) and SRs of diagnostic test accuracy.

Current projects:

For health services research, I am familiar with and have used the following methods: parallel and crossover RCTs, stepped wedge RCTs, interrupted time series, quasi-experimental designs (eg controlled before/after (pre-post), uncontrolled pre-post), and cross-sectional. I am familiar with other observational study designs such as cohorts studies and case-control but have not used these myself. I have a particular interest in new models of care, especially taking patients out of hospital settings and providing care in the home, new roles (eg nurse endoscopists), new designs of hospitals (eg single bedded rooms, and design of post anaesthetic recovery units), and training programs for healthcare professionals.

Current projects:

  • A pilot study of the safety and clinical effectiveness, acceptability and cost effectiveness of home infusions of Tysabri (Tysabri®) by ambulatory care nurses for people with multiple sclerosis?
  • Single bed hospitals: nursing workflows and patients experience
  • Evaluating costs and impact of early-discharge for planned caesarean sections: Setting the Benchmark
  • Transdisciplinary frailty research to achieve healthy ageing
  • Evaluating nurse endoscopist roles in a metropolitan health service South Australia

For patient safety research, I have been involved in studies that have developed and analysed data from incident reporting systems, especially in emergency medicine and medical imaging (radiology), acute care hospitals, and with respect to electronic health records, and documentation of allergies. I was involved in developing content for the International Classification for Patient Safety, for World Health Health Organisation and am interested in other quality improvement activities (eg human factors training) and their impact on patient safety outcomes.

Current projects:

  • Review of allergy & ADR incidents associated with clinical information systems

For implementing evidence into practice, I have been directly involved in a program for residential aged care staff to improve their use of evidence, assessment of the context in which care is provided in hospitals (within the PARIHS framework of knowledge translation), nutrition screening in hospitals, and hydration for hospital patients.

Current projects:

  • Improving evidence utilisation by health professionals in public health centres (Puskesmas) to reduce neonatal mortality in South Kalimantan
