Associate Professor Jane Munro, who works at Melbourne Royal Children’s Hospital, was in her final year of Paediatric Rheumatology training when her 2004 Fellowship enabled her to visit the world’s best clinical centres in this specialisation.

During her travels to the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Sweden, Jane observed innovative methods of preparing and caring for children undergoing medical procedures, which diminished the children’s pain.

Jane’s Churchill Fellowship led directly to two opportunities to make improvements in this area; a National Institution of Clinical Studies Fellowship (from the NHMRC) to study quality improvement and procedural pain management; and to her PhD, on studying the impact of the Comfort Kids procedural pain management program across the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Jane outlines the ‘cascading effect of being awarded a Churchill Fellowship – it was truly life-changing! This is both in terms of the ability to step outside of Australia and visit the leading hospitals internationally as well as make links with other clinicians and researchers that I maintain today, fourteen years on.’

Jane completed a Masters in Public Health in 2006 and will complete her Masters in Health Service Management in 2018.

The Fellowship, writes Jane, ‘continues to influence my practice every day as we work to improve how we care for children in pain.’
