Description

Speaker: Dr Nicola Morgan

Title: Hempathy - Medicinal Cannabis

About the Speaker: Dr Nicola Morgan is jointly appointed as a Palliative Care Consultant Physician with the Gold Coast Health Service and an Honorary Adjunct Assistant Professor at BondUniversity, with a research interest in the quality use of medications.

Nicola graduated in Medicine from the University of Oxford, UK in 1993. Following training as a General Practitioner in 1997 she moved to Mount Gambier, Australia where she worked as a GP Principal for 12 years. On moving to Adelaide in 2010 she changed direction and became a palliative care physician. She has worked as a consultant physician in Adelaide, Cairns and most recently the Gold Coast.

With expertise in all areas of palliative care, she is committed to providing best possible quality end of life care for patients and their families, through management of pain and other distressing symptoms. She places a strong focus on patient-centred care and endeavours to always ensure the patient and their family are well informed and actively involved in decisions about their care. She has a keen interest in quality use of medicines and evidence based care and believes that access to high quality care should be available in both rural and urban areas. Nicola is passionate in her desire to integrate a palliative focus into all areas of clinical education and in strengthening ties between research, policy and practice.
