Personal profile

Biography

I am a primary care researcher and implementation scientist who is focused on improving clinical care through the practical and effective use of research evidence. Throughout my career I have cultivated expertise in developing, undertake and implementing evidence-based research in primary health care. I enjoy working with and leading large teams to achieve these goals.
At present, through the IMPRovE NHMRC Partnership Trial, with a multidisciplinary team of investigators, I manage a team of researchers and students to develop evidence-informed interventions to implement clinical guidelines and to deliver and assess these in general practice. This project follows the recent publication of national clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and management of work-related mental health conditions in general practice. These guidelines were developed to the highest standards, achieving National Health and Medical Research Council approval of recommendations as well as endorsement from peak general practice bodies.
Previously as a Research Fellow in the Department of General Practice, Monash University I managed the development and implementation of a clinical guideline for lung cancer, investigated barriers to guideline uptake, and managed an international Centre of Research Excellence, Innovative Models Promoting access-to-care Transformation (IMPACT).
Prior to entering academia I worked in the non-government sector, at Beyond Blue, where I helped to build and translate research evidence through implementing clinical practice guidelines and translating research outcomes into programs and practice; and at the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, which is where I first developed an interest in driving evidence-informed primary health care.
