About Kasia

Assistant Professor Dr Kasia Bail is an established academic and registered nurse based in Canberra, Australia, with a primary interest in improving sustainable acute care health delivery for ageing populations.

Dr Bail has used large state-level data sets to determine costs of care. Her research has used both quantitative and qualitative methods of inquiry, and has investigated hospital policy, aged care nurse practitioners, prognosis communication and most predominantly, hospital dementia services. She works clinically on a monthly basis, and teaches undergraduate and postgraduate Registered Nurses. She uses these broad insights into the delivery of care to identify, explore and advocate for system improvements, and is ultimately driven by needless suffering she sees in vulnerable populations.

Dr Bail recognises the need for ongoing multidisciplinary research, analysis and discussion at state, national and international levels. Her interests as a researcher are Australian’s three most expensive populations:

  • Hospitals
  • Older people
  • Nurses
