Helping the homeless
                                             Addressing the challenges faced by people experiencing
                                             homelessness in Adelaide is a complex issue that inspires passion,
                                             particularly for UniSA lecturer and researcher, Dr Katia Ferrar.
                                             On any given night, more than 5,000 South Australians are
                                             homeless, encountering unique barriers when it comes to
                                             accessing health services.
                                             In partnership with The Salvation Army, Dr Ferrar spearheaded
                                             the development and launch of UniSA’s Open Door Health Clinic,
                                             a facility offering pro bono physiotherapy and podiatry services
                                             for those experiencing homelessness and people in crisis.
                                             While working to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for
                                             at-risk community members, the clinic also delivers rewarding
                                             learning experiences for students, who work under the supervision
                                             of qualified clinical educators.
                                             Students are able to develop an increased sense of social justice,
                                             become more adaptable in the delivery of healthcare services,
                                             and are exposed to the realities of communities in need.

                                             Dr Ferrar is highly celebrated and has been recognised as the AMP Tomorrow
                                             Maker 2016, Winnovation Awards finalist 2017 and Unsung Hero of Science

"My teachers helped me to become
   the holistic and caring Registered
 Nurse I am today. After learning new
 skills using the unique virtual health
community and on-campus simulated
  hospital environment, I completed
 placements in a rural nursing home,
a stroke unit, neurosurgery ward and
 a cardiac surgical unit. The highlight
was observing an open-heart surgery,
which ultimately led me to a career in
      paediatric surgical nursing."
