Biography

Associate Professor Anne Leditschke is a Senior Specialist, and leads the Research Program for the Adult Intensive Care Service at Mater Health. Her current research interests include intensive care early rehabilitation and training, clinical ethics, optimising care at the end of life, and healthcare provider professionalism and leadership. She has internationally recognised expertise in intensive care mobilisation and was invited to participate in an international group to develop consensus recommendations on safety criteria for active mobilisation of mechanically ventilated critically ill adults.

A graduate in medicine from the University of Queensland, Anne completed post graduate specialist training in both general internal medicine and intensive care medicine. She has extensive consultant intensive care experience in multiple settings including academic tertiary metropolitan intensive care (QLD, ACT), rural/ regional hospital intensive care (NSW) and private practice (QLD, NSW, ACT). She has extensive clinical leadership experience, and has contributed to multiple committees at national, regional, hospital and unit level. She has a postgraduate management qualification from the Australian National University (ANU).

Anne has a strong interest in health care education at all levels, with involvement in curriculum development, teaching and assessment for university medical, nursing and physiotherapy students at the ANU, University of Canberra, University of Wollongong and  University of Queensland and extensive involvement in specialist training and assessment for multiple specialist training colleges including the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, The Royal Australasian College of Physicians and the College of Intensive Care Medicine.

Personal Statement: “I am passionate about patient centred care and integrating research into clinical education and practice so that it becomes a routine part of all aspects of how we work. This means approaching everything we do with curiosity but also robust methodology – what do we need to know, what do we need to do, to provide the best possible care for our patients?”
