RN Div 1
Amanda Kearney joined Canterbury Neurology in 2018. After obtaining a Bachelor of Nursing, Amanda gained clinical exposure across a range of disciplines in both hospital-based and community settings. The breadth of expertise Amanda brings to her position at Canterbury Neurology results from a variety of roles including theatre nursing, work in the aged-care sector both in Australia and the United Kingdom, hospital-based interventional radiology and in-patient psychiatry. Amanda broadened her skill set with post-graduate studies in education support services and has extensive experience in educational based programmes for people with disabilities.
At Canterbury Neurology, Amanda sees our patients in conjunction with Dr. Blazé and is frequently the first port-of-call for patient queries and concerns. She is gaining expertise in the management of people with complex Parkinson’s disease including those receiving non-oral continuous therapies such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel infusion and apomorphine infusion. Amanda contributes enormously to the unique and personalised service provided for patients at Canterbury Neurology.
