Dr Jill Campbell RN

Clinical Nurse, Skin Integrity Service

Dr Jill Campbell is a Clinical Nurse in the Skin Integrity Service at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and the recipient of a Robert and Janelle Bird RBWH Foundation Early Career Research Fellowship as well as the Health Innovation, Investment and Research Office, Nursing and Midwifery Research Early Career Fellowship.  She holds a joint appointment with the School of Nursing, Faculty of Health, Queensland University of Technology.

Dr Campbell has extensive clinical expertise as a specialist wound care nurse at RBWH and in the aged care sector. Her doctoral studies investigated the phenomenon of incontinence-associated dermatitis in the acute care setting. As a component of her PhD she conceived and published a novel conceptual model (The Skin Safety Model) that presents a new paradigm for the care of skin integrity in vulnerable acute care patients. This model has had global recognition, informing international guidelines and has had international uptake by industry. Dr Campbell’s post-doctoral research is investigating the continence care activities as a contributing component of skin injury in the acute care setting. She has been an invited clinical and academic expert in the development and publication several international clinical practice consensus documents, is a member of the Wounds Australia Research Committee, and a member of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care Comprehensive Care Nursing and Advisory Group. She regularly provides peer review for a variety of Q1 ranked international journals, is an author for the Cochrane Nursing Care Field, is currently supervising a PhD student and mentors staff at RBWH. She regularly publishes in high ranked international journals and has been an invited speaker at international and national conferences.
