Christine East is a nurse and midwife. She holds a joint appointment between Mercy Health and La Trobe University, with input into senior-level clinical governance and research strategy.

With over 30 years of clinical and research experience, Chris has developed wide-reaching collaborative networks. These have enabled the development of research efforts for evaluating and improving the perinatal health of Australia’s mothers and babies. She is well-versed in the her understanding of the interface between the clinical setting and academia, thus ensuring translation of research into practice.

Current research projects involve varied perinatal interests, including induction of labour, postpartum haemorrage, preventing stillbirth, Cochrane systematic reviews, refugee perinatal mental health, and beyond, with nursing interests emerging in the areas of fatigue and medication errors, as well as residential aged-care in-reach services.
