Ms Evelyn Culnane
Evelyn leads the hospital-wide Transition Support Service at the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Melbourne which is responsible for the transition of approximately 2,000 complex patients annually, with paediatric and adult health service partners from across all disciplines, general practice and the community. This year, the Transition Support Service received the inaugural Exemplar Practice Award from the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality Healthcare.
Evelyn’s leadership in the field of transition care has resulted in positive outcomes for patients and their families including the implementation of a new model of care for young people with an Intellectual Disability and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder with mental health concerns.
Her active research profile has enabled further developments in evidence-based practice and includes a 3-year international interdisciplinary longitudinal transition study, a 5-year NHMRC study to improve outcomes for adolescents and young adults with Cerebral Palsy, Esophageal Atresia transition care guidelines with the International Network on Esophageal Atresia and the recent publication of the Australia and New Zealand Fontan Consensus Care Statement - the culmination of a 5-year NHMRC project.
Evelyn is also Chair of the transition special interest group for Children’s Healthcare Australasia.
