Dr Kyla’s Colleagues
I am a registered nurse and nurse practitioner. I have postgraduate studies in child health and allergy nursing and a Master of Nursing (Nurse Practitioner). I have over 20 years of experience in healthcare, most of this working with children. I have worked for many years at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children in Perth (now Perth Children’s Hospital) and have also worked in children’s hospitals in New South Wales and Victoria. I have worked in a variety of roles in various clinical settings including nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, clinical nurse including research and staff development nurse. My work interests include eczema and allergy in children, parent support, education and research. I work as a nurse practitioner in the Department of Dermatology,
Immunology and Allergy at Perth Children’s Hospital. My role includes seeing and treating children with eczema, establishing a new rapid eczema allergy support service for infants and young children at Perth
Children’s Hospital and developing eczema resources to educate and support parents as well as health professionals. I also work as an eczema nurse practitioner at Children’s Eczema Care.
People come to me to be delivered education with empathy. To learn how to be confident in troubleshooting and navigating your way through inevitable bouts of sickness in children.
As a Paeds RN and Mum to two young boys, I understand how much sick kids can impact the whole family unit. And to make matters worse, there is nowhere for parents to access ongoing, evidence-based, pre-emptive education about inevitable sicknesses in little ones. The fevers. The snotty noses. The rashes. Sick Happens provides support and education to help parents gain confidence in handling this normal unfortunate aspect of parenting.
I am a GP who has sub-specialised in kids health - I love dealing with all aspects of paediatrics from physical to psychological health and wellbeing. I also offer check ups and preventative healthcare such as development checks, immunisations.
I also enjoy health promotion with podcasting and youtube videos.
