At the Royal Hobart Hospital, she teaches ultrasound skills to trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists, and is an ultrasound assessor for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
In developing countries, access to ultrasound can be lifesaving for pregnant women, and Kristine has made several trips to Indonesia and Papua New Guinea to teach basic ultrasound skills to doctors and midwives who are working in remote clinics. She is a member of the Australian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM) Outreach Committee, which promotes ultrasound teaching in developing countries in our region, as well as remote areas of Australia.
Kristine has a special interest in the role that the fetal environment, and the physical, nutritional and emotional health of parents, play in influencing pregnancy outcomes and health right through life. This interest has led to involvement with DOHaD Society of Australia and New Zealand, which explores the developmental origins of health and disease. She is also an active member of Doctors for the Environment Australia.
