Kate Barnett, (BA 1970, DipEd 1971, MEd 1975), is Deputy Director, Australian Workplace Innovation and Social Research Centre, at The University of Adelaide. Her six-week Fellowship to travel the USA and Canada will allow her to obtain an in-depth understanding from international leaders of designing, implementing and sustaining a ‘teaching nursing home’.
Kate Cameron, (BBehSc Hons 2000, BSocWk 2003), is Lead Practitioner at Children in Out of Home Care Disability Services in Adelaide, and has been awarded a six-week Fellowship to visit Denmark, the UK, the USA and Canada. She will explore international approaches to residential and alternative care for young people with developmental and intellectual disability and significant challenging behaviours.
Justin Ranford, (BHlthSc (AmbSt) 2003), is an Intensive Care Paramedic, with the South Australian Ambulance Service and his four-week Fellowship is to visit Norway and the UK to investigate how South Australia’s road toll can be reduced by exploring coordinated emergency services training and rapid extrication techniques.
The three recipients will be presented with their Fellowships by the Governor of South Australia on 19 August.
