Speakers: Natalie Wischer, Dr Tina Campbell and Kylie Nadenbousch

Natalie Wischer is the Chief Executive Officer for the National Association of Diabetes Centres (NADC) and Executive Director of the Australian Diabetes Online Service. Natalie has extensive experience in clinical and management roles across acute, aged care and primary health care settings.

She has also been involved in designing and delivering education and training across these various roles. Much of her experience has been in rural and remote communities including having lived and worked in one of the most remote Indigenous communities in Australia for 3 years.

Having focused on diabetes care and services for over 20 years, her passion has grown to include a comprehensive understanding of the opportunities and benefits of available technologies including telehealth, apps and social media in self-management, education and support of people living with diabetes as well as for healthcare professionals.


Dr Tina Campbell is a health promotion specialist with extensive experience developing patient education resources, tools and programs. She is the Founder and Managing Director of Healthily, a Melbourne-based health technology company, specialising in patient education and behaviour change.

With a career in the health industry spanning two decades, Tina has led the development of Australia’s largest video library of patient and carer experiences, and designed and developed the GoShare Healthcare content distribution platform, a web application used by health professionals around Australia to deliver tailored education resources to their patients by email or SMS.

Tina completed her PhD at the Centre for Health Policy, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, The University of Melbourne. Her randomised controlled trial evaluated the impact of a ‘patient narrative’ intervention program on self-efficacy and self-care behaviours in people with Type 2 Diabetes.


Kylie Nadenbousch is a Credentialled Diabetes Educator with a nursing background, who has had been working with Nexus Primary Health in the Mitchell shire for 18 years. Since 2004 her role has been predominantly in Diabetes Education. Kylie has been an active member of the Lower Hume PCP Diabetes Collaborative and supports collaboration between health services. A collaborative approach to care was strengthened during 2019 – 2021 when she was involved in a Diabetes Diversion Project aiming to reduce hospitalization risk for Mitchell clients with Type 2 Diabetes. With a strong focus on empowering her clients to self-manage their diabetes and overall health she is part of the Nexus Diabetes Education team which has grown from a single CDE to a team of 3, supported by an extensive allied health team.

Kylie has recently begun using PERL as a tool for sharing information with clients and has found it a gamechanger because of its ready access to accurate and up to date information that can be shared with a client, usually in well under a minute!
