Dr Sharyn Maxwell, PhD, MHA, PGCE (LTHE), B Comm (Hons)
(email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Sharyn has a multidisciplinary background with training in economics, counselling, public relations and consumer advocacy, health services management and higher education. She has worked in various fields of endeavour moving between the public service, Christian ministries, community care and academia. The primary theme throughout her career has been improving health services for people with developmental disabilities and/or mental illness (and their families). Sharyn’s interests focus on whole systems approaches to the delivery and evaluation of quality health care services. More specifically they include theoretical and policy considerations of health systems, the practical needs of healthcare professionals in their day to day work, and patients' experience of healthcare. She graduated with a PhD from Durham University in 2008 entitled “The Contextualization of the Coordination of Care within NHS Trusts: An Organisational Perspective”.
In her spare time, Sharyn enjoys socialising, gardening, walking and genealogy.
