We are proud to announce Allison as the 2018 CONNI Physiotherapist award winner!

Allison has been a physiotherapist for almost 25 years and has predominantly specialised in the assessment and management of women and men living with continence and prolapse issues.

Since 1998, Allison has been working at the QE II Jubilee Hospital within the Gynaecology/ Urogynaecology department, Urology department and the Colorectal unit. Until 2014 Allison was the sole practitioner in the hospital.

Thanks to Allison's work demonstrating evidence based patient care, delivered through a continence and women's health physiotherapy service, the services offered at QE II were expanded. These days the team at QE II includes specialists, colorectal CNC’s, Urology CNC and even a dietitian. More recent developments have seen the team providing support to the Inala Indigenous service with views of expanding this assistance to include staff training and awareness within the community.

Allison continues to provide fantastic physiotherapy services to male and female adults in the public health setting as well as privately in her own practice. Additionally, Allison regularly provides both formal and informal supervision to pelvic physiotherapists at a statewide level and delivers staff training and professional development within her areas of expertise.

Just in case Allison wasn’t busy enough, she is also the current president of the CFA QLD branch and the long-standing secretary of the Women’s, Men’s and Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Network.

The team here at CONNI believe Allison is a well-deserving winner of our ICS Conference prize and we hope the experience continues to help Allison in continence physio health. Congratulations Allison!
