Personal profile


Ben leads the Evidenced based Women’s Health Care Research Group in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at Monash University.  Much medical practice around the world is conducted without evidence that interventions are beneficial to the patient and will not cause harm. This group aims to develop evidence on the effectiveness of all medical interventions in this area, preferably through large collaborations in randomised clinical trials, to provide insight on the available evidence tailored to the individual patient for both patients and doctors. To achieve this, international collaboration through coordination of research agendas for clinical and basic research, and the establishment of guidelines is essential. The group aims to involve young people, create large datasets and initiate international collaboration.
