9 Feb 2022 9:59 AM | Valerie Orton (Administrator)

Are you an internationally educated nurse working in cancer or palliative care setting in Australia?

Have you obtained your initial nursing qualification overseas before migrating to Australia?

We are seeking for volunteers to participate in our study.    

What is this study about?

This research aims to understand the experiences of internationally educated nurses (IEN) in the context of cancer and end-of-life care. This study explores and analyses how cultural beliefs and practices of IENs inform their delivery of nursing care. Considering the cultural diversity of Australia and its nursing workforce, understanding this phenomenon deserves attention to advance culturally sensitive care and enhance IENs' workplace experience.

Why participate?

You will contribute valuable information to advance knowledge and understanding of your experience and may inform future strategies to enhance your work experience.                                                                            

Who can participate?

  • Registered nurses who obtained their initial nursing qualification overseas; and
  • With work experience in cancer or palliative care setting in Australia for 12 months or greater.

What do I need to do?

  • Attend a telephone interview
  •  The interview may take approximately 60 minutes and will be audio-recorded. All information will be kept confidential.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Jay Balante at or through mobile at 0410 808 159. If you know someone who might be interested in participating, please share the study information with them.
