Personal profile


Dr Joosup Kim (BMedSci honours, BEco, PhD) is a research fellow who has published over 40 peer-reviewed manuscripts related to stroke in high impact journals such as Neurology and Stroke., on the topics of epidemiology, health services, quality of care and economic evaluation.

His background is in health services research and epidemiology. During his PhD, he contributed to the coordination of the STAND FIRM randomised controlled trial that was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of chronic disease management plans provided by general practitioners to survivors of stroke or TIA. Concurrently, he analysed the association between risk factors for stroke and long-term outcomes using data collected for the North East Melbourne Stroke Incidence Study, the largest stroke incidence study conducted in Australia.

As a postdoc, he has contributed to the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry (AuSCR) as a data analyst, including for annual reports, reports to state governments requiring benchmarking and comparison of hospital performance, and manuscripts on the association between patient care and outcomes. He also provides data management and analytic support for several data linkage projects related to the AuSCR such as the groundbreaking Stroke123 study.

He is currently a CIC of the NHMRC-funded PRECISE project (#1141848) and an NHMRC-funded synergy grant called STOPSTROKE (#1182071). He also leads the linkage of the AuSCR with data collected in general practices (POLAR, Outcome Health), expected to be completed in mid 2021.
