Hello, I am Shani
Thanks for stopping by. I am so happy that you have decided to read my profile.
I am a Healthcare Practitioner from Australia serving in the sub-acute sector. As someone who is passionate about caring for others, I decided to contribute to MediChannel.Org by sharing my experience within healthcare with you.
A never-ending professional career
I am a registered Healthcare Practitioner with a Masters qualification from the University of Newcastle (Australia) and with over a decade of hands-on experience working for hospitals and in aged-care. I am also an alumna of the Kursk State Medical University (Russia) and the University of South Australia (Australia).
I am currently working for a reputed aged-care facility in South Australia as the Director of Care, which I am really proud of. My current leadership roles broadly require me to develop high-quality person-centred care services for the facility, evaluating care service delivery outcomes and continuous improvement. I am also an educator for the staff, residents, their families and the broader community in many specialist areas.
Diabetes, arthritis, dementia, pain management, wound management, continence management, behavior management, complex health, safety and risk management, medication management, and emergency management, and more broadly aged-related medical conditions are the areas I have significant experience and expertise in. I guide the organization I work for with the best clinical practice in the management of both acute and chronic health problems and specialized care needs.
To update my knowledge in the specialty areas, I annually attend Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) training, Better Practice Conference, Dementia Conferences and online training to name a few here. I am a member of the Non-acute Infection Control Special Interest Group of the Department of Health (Australia) and Wounds Australia.
I also work as a guest author for an online training platform for nurses, care staff and the public.
Life beyond healthcare
I consider myself as someone honest, trustworthy, responsible, reliable, disciplined, assertive and hardworking. I enjoy being so. I am a highly organized person with excellent time management, which in return has helped me to excel in multiple areas beyond working for my employer. For example to reach out to you here and writing content published in MediChannel.Org.
I am a peoples’ person who enjoys listening to people, who maintains long-term, honest friendships with hundreds of people. I bring value to their lives and share my values with them to make their lives beautiful. A smile on someone’s face is my ultimate goal, which makes me happier in return.
I am a public speaker, and proficient in Russian, in addition to English of course.
I am a joyful character living with my family in Australia.
I enjoy the fact that Australia is a culturally diverse society, which allows me to explore multiple cultures and their rich traditions.
I am an animal lover. I spend considerable time with our Golden Retriever.
A little bit of help from me to you
My intention with the contribution to MediChannel.Org is to widen my access to people whom I could potentially guide and help-out. Saying so, given you are not under my care, it is critical that you clarify with the healthcare practitioners treating you if my guidance is relevant to your individual circumstances.
Although as much as I like to help you out from a distance, you should not consider my guidance here as ‘medical advice’. It is not!
I sincerely hope the information I share here will help you to live a healthier and happier life. If you have any questions, I am glad to answer them, again generally and to the best of my knowledge. So, feel free to ask any questions below or under any article I have authored or reviewed.
Thanks again for reading about me. It is a pleasure to meet you in this way, and I wish you all the very best,
