Dr Karen-Ann Clarke is a registered nurse and a specialised mental health nurse with 30 years’ experience of working with individuals and families impacted by the experience of mental illness.

As a lecturer in nursing at USC, Karen-Ann is responsible for the coordination of mental health curricula across multiple undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Teaching in excess of 900 undergraduate students each year, she is passionate about the value that immersive mental health simulation can bring to student’s learning and clinical skills and the way that it can safely bring to life theoretical concepts related to mental healthcare.

The lecturer had an excellent presentation on the difference betweeen crossing boundaries in a health care setting and violating boundaries. It was interesting to understand the different types of personalities. Type A-C. I could identify as being a mix of all 3. It was helpful to know the process of how to set boundaries and to know that I am entitled to have those boundaries as is the case of others.
