Steps in Education has a mission to assist in the transfer of knowledge, and promote the strength of individuals and groups to further build their knowledge and skills in the areas of family, child health and child development.
I also focus on supporting English language skills that are required in the healthcare setting. This service is of particular relevance to individuals who are studying or wanting to study nursing and require additional support and practice where all four macro skills are incorporated.
My priority is to assist and help you identify knowledge gaps and connect the clinical dots with your theoretical knowledge.
I have extensive experience in the areas of family and child health and development, in both the clinical and academic domain. In addition to this, I have considerable experience in working with marginalised communities, in particular Indigenous communities in remote and isolated parts of Australia.
Siglinde’s experience has been extensive both in the clinical and academic field of Nursing. She is both a Registered General Nurse and a Midwife with additional qualifications in Maternal and Child Health. Her career and experience has allowed her to work and travel to remote parts of Australia and work with Indigneous families. Siglinde was also commissioned to develop and write training material for the Lead Testing of children aged 6 months to 5 years in a mining community, a training manual specific to Indigneous Health Workers supporting their assessment in child health and development.
Siglinde has been a content reviewer for a nursing journal, an abstract reviewer for the International Nurses conference and the Chronic Disease conference held in Alice Springs (2014). Siglinde has written competency modules for Elsevier publishing and developed learning modules for nurses in the area of child health and development.
