Evelyn's career began in earnest in the late 1970s with nursing, then progressed into public sector health administration, health service management and workstudy during the 1980s, followed by applied research, policy analysis, health and nursing informatics, consulting as a company director and finally in 1993 she entered academe at Central Queensland University, first as a senior lecturer and since 2003 as a Professor delivering and promoting Health Informatics education and research. Evelyn's area of consulting expertise, now spanning nearly 20 years, is in the conduct of hospital productivity reviews consisting primarily of the study of nursing work using both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Evelyn developed the Patient Assessment and Information System (PAIS) nursing workload monitoring system during the early 1980s and a Universal Career Evaluation System (UNCES) during the early 1990s.
Evelyn's interest in informatics began in the late 1970s when she undertook a course in computer science. She has actively provided leadership and contributed to various professional organizations since the early 1980s, including the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA). Evelyn's personal vision of improving health through the best possible use of information and communication technologies has shaped Evelyn's subsequent career path. Her networking skills and strong commitment to this vision resulted in her being a foundation board member of the Health Informatics Society of Australia, initiator of the annual National Health Informatics Conferences (HIC) and more recently a foundation Fellow of the newly established Australian College of Health Informatics. Evelyn initiated the publishing of the first Australian text on Health Informatics by Churchill Livingstone, Melbourne in 1996.
She is a foundation member of the Standards Australia IT/14 health informatics committee, serves on two technical sub committees and represents this committee as a member of the National ICT Standards Committee, and the National Health Data Standards Committee. She initiated and collaboratively directed an international effort to develop a new ISO standard for the integration of a reference terminology model for nursing.

The HDSC also has responsibility for overseeing the work of the Classifications and Terminology Working Group. Evelyn is a founding member of the open EHR Clinical Review Board responsible for Archetype Governance and a development process framework promoting Archetype standardisation.
Evelyn participated in the Australian Health Information Council's workforce capacity building sub-group and contributed to the development of the National Statement outlining a vision for the health informatics capacity of the workforce and detailing priorities of action in the areas of leadership, education and research.
