ACU University Medallist presents stroke findings
ACU health sciences honours student, Asmara Jammali-Blasi, has recently completed research into stroke outcomes for patients as part of her thesis at St Vincent’s Hospital - completed through the ACU Faculty of Health Sciences Student Support Scheme.
The scheme enables students to complete their honours research two days per week at the St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney / ACU
Nursing Research Institute and work in the hospital wards for the remaining three days per week.
Asmara presented her research findings on 90 day stroke outcomes at the state-wide Smart Strokes conference as well as the national Stroke Society of Australasia conference in 2010.
Asmara was awarded an ACU University Medal for her honours thesis - the first time a nurse has received the honour.
“The program allowed me to combine my research interests with my work as a registered nurse” said Asmara. “I felt very lucky to learn from top specialists at the hospital and make use of incredible resources available here.”
