Professor Campbell

Professor of Clinical Redesign, Nursing, School of Health Sciences, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tas, Australia

Professor Campbell undertook his undergraduate education at the Department of Nursing at the University of Manchester in the 1970s, worked as a Health Visitor and then undertook specialist training in children’s nursing. During the 1990s, he was chair of the Association of British Paediatric Nurses, and was founding editor of Child Health journal (now with Sage). He gained his PhD on the topic of mouth care for sick children from Northumbria University. He was made the founding Chair of Nursing Practice at this institution in 2000, leading the Nursing Practice Research Centre at City Hospitals Sunderland, UK.  This is where he developed his international reputation for translational research. He has published widely and is currently Editor-In-Chief of two journals.  He became Head of the School of Health at the University of New England, NSW, in 2009, where he reinvigorated the teaching and research capacity. He moved to the University of Tasmania in January 2013, to become Head of Nursing and Midwifery, then Head of the School of Health Sciences and is now Professor of Clinical Redesign, Nursing. He was an executive member of the Council of Deans of Nursing and Midwifery (Australia and New Zealand), and a member of the Council of Deans of Health Science.

Prof. Campbell has a long history of translational research, with nearly 100 publications in the applied health arena. Prof. Campbell led Northumbria University’s Nursing Practice Research Centre from 2000 until 2008. As part of this work he led the NHS funded “Delivery of Care” research programme.  Most notably Prof. Campbell developed novel methodological approaches to change, such as his Patient Journey approach. Via this method he led the redevelopment of 18 clinical services from a patient/carer view point, but in partnership with health management and clinical leaders, as well as ensuring that national and international clinical guidelines are fulfilled. 

Another aspect of Prof. Campbell’s scholarship is in the arena of leadership, with evaluation and innovation expertise in its development. Prof. Campbell is also pioneering the use of the Four Frames of complex organisations in the health services arena.

Prof. Campbell is the joint national lead of the Health Management Research Alliance (Australia). A major part of this work has been the Positive Organisational Scholarship in Health approach, heralding a move away from simply reducing the number or errors, to embracing areas of great success and learning from those areas and making these approaches more pervasive.

Prof. Campbell also has a notable history of the development and evaluation of new and developing roles in the health services. These roles have included nurse consultants, Lecturer/Practitioners and Health Care Assistants.

Prof. Campbell has a history of over $3million of research grant income since becoming a Professor in 2000.
