Diane Loh

Research Nurse
  • Diane began her nursing career in New Zealand having completed a Comprehensive Diploma in Nursing in 1986.  Eager to also obtain Midwifery qualifications and to gain overseas work experience she studied in London and achieved a Certificate in Midwifery through the Thames Valley University in 1993. Further studies in Nursing resulted in a Bachelor of Nursing qualification (ECU) in 2000.

    The duration of over 30 years of Nursing and Midwifery practice has seen Diane gain experience in Accident and Emergency Nursing, Occupational Health, Midwifery, General Medical, Surgical and High Dependency Care. She has also been privileged to work in rural locations within Australia and more recently as a GP Practice Nurse within the community setting.
  • Seeing rapid changes to health care and the improvement in clinical outcomes over the last three decades through medical research is what inspired Diane to take up the role of Research Nurse with WIRF in 2012. Diane’s key role is in the co-ordination of clinical trials conducted through WIRF.

    This involves screening, recruiting and randomisation of eligible patients, treatment initiation, data collection, patient follow up and clinical trial management.  Diane is truly inspired by the generosity of patients willing to be a part of research studies and believes that her key initiative through good clinical practice is in ensuring that all research recruits have a positive and rewarding research experience and are valued through their contribution to scientific discovery.
  • To date, Diane has worked on the following Neonatal, Obstetric and Gynaecology/Oncology clinical trials:

    Australian Placental Transfusion Study
    Amniotic Fluid Study – Ureaplasma
    Placental inflammation study
    The Cycle Study
    Aboriginal Health Worker Study
    feMMe study – Treatment of Endometrial hyperplasia
    LACE study - Long term Follow Up
    Predict 1000 – reducing pre-term birth
For over 40 years, WIRF has conducted and supported research to improve the health of women and infants.
