Nevena acts for a range of health practitioners and health facilities, and inspires loyalty with her pragmatic and clearly thought out strategic advice. She plays a strategic role in advising MDOs and peak allied health bodies, both national and state, on topics ranging from the National Law to Medicare investigations and dealing with the media.
