Personal profile


Dr Jasmin Grigg PhD MPH BPsych(Hons) is a Research Fellow in Addiction Studies at Turning Point (Eastern Health) and Monash University (Eastern Health Clinical School).

Her research focuses on the development of novel public health interventions to reduce alcohol consumption and related harms, and raise awareness about the low levels of drinking that cause harm. Through the use of hybrid implementation-effectiveness research methods that involve close collaboration with consumer, community, government and industry stakeholders, Dr Grigg’s research is contributing to the evidence-base for alternative, highly accessible interventions to reduce the gap in service provision for populations not accessing conventional alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment.

Dr Grigg has been an Investigator on and managed multiple clinical trials of behavioural and pharmacological interventions to improve addiction and health outcomes across patient and community populations, including a VicHealth and Eastern Health Foundation co-funded world-first pilot trial of a brief intervention in the breast screening setting targeting women’s low awareness of the link between alcohol and breast cancer, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funded nationwide Ready2Change intervention trials for alcohol and methamphetamine use disorders, and a National Centre for Clinical Research on Emerging Drugs (NCCRED) funded co-design and implementation project to translate forensic data from police drug seizures into clinical alerts to improve public health.

She has additionally led multiple projects that have informed government decision-making, health service delivery and client care, including research commissioned by the Victorian Department of Health (e.g. development of the Methamphetamine Treatment Guidelines), the Victorian Department of Transport and Planning, and the Victorian Mental Health Complaints Commissioner.
