Krista brings to the team a rich understanding of complex care in the context of infectious disease.

Using social work theory and models of practice, Krista collaborates with those affected by tuberculosis (TB), and the multidisciplinary team, to optimise personal and public health outcomes.

This dual aim calls for an extensive understanding of the health and welfare setting, social determinants of health, and the impact of psychosocial concerns on engagement with tuberculosis treatment.

An experienced practitioner researcher, Krista is committed to empowerment and capacity building through professional development, reflection and consultation.

Krista is part of the Melbourne Tuberculosis Community and Social Science and Health Innovation for Tuberculosis.
