Since starting in cancer nursing as a 2nd year Registered Nurse at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane Australia on 5 June 1989, Michael has built a career within oncology and haematology that focuses on recognising, assessing, and treating unwell cancer patients utilising a collaborative multi-professional approach.

Currently he is undertaking a graduate certificate in Health Professions Education with University College London, and is looking forward to ongoing collaboration with Guy’s Cancer Academy.
