Georgia Rendell

Georgia is a registered nurse who initially trained and worked at the Austin Hospital where she realised her love of coronary and critical care nursing. In 2016, Georgia completed her Graduate Certificate of Critical Care Nursing at Deakin University which sparked a keen interest in research and further education. When Georgia moved to the remote North West Queensland town of Mount Isa in 2017 and began working in the small 5-bed intensive care unit, the unique challenges of remote and Indigenous healthcare were apparent. Georgia now works as a community nurse co-ordinating cardiology care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and adults with rheumatic heart disease in North West Queensland. Georgia has recently completed her Master of Nursing at Deakin University. Research for her minor thesis focused on health literacy in a remote critically ill patient population. Through her experiences working in remote areas of Queensland, Georgia has developed a passion for addressing the unique challenges of providing healthcare in this context and for improving the health inequities experienced by those Australians living in rural and remote locations.
