Dr Christine Palmer is a mental health nurse with extensive clinical practice experience in inpatient and community settings as well as 10 years working in private practice. She is particularly interested in recovery-oriented practice across all settings. Christine is a clinical supervision educator (in collaboration with Adjunct Professor Brenda Happell) and provides clinical supervision in private practice.
While her Master of Nursing degree included a research project using a quantitative methodology, her PhD study used critical ethnography as the research methodology (Nursing Practice in an Acute Psychiatric Inpatient Unit: A Critical Ethnography). Christine considers herself a qualitative researcher with a particular interest in critical methodologies that interrogate power relations and question the status quo. Christine is very interested in working with students keen to apply any of the qualitative methodologies to their research practice.
