Biography

Dr Tari Turner is a Senior Research Fellow on Project Transform at Cochrane Australia, and Senior Research Fellow in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University. She is also Co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Health Research Policy and Systems.

 

Tari's passion is supporting evidence-based decision-making to ensure the best possible outcomes. She enjoys designing, finding, synthesising and communicating research, and she loves seeing research actually make a difference.

She also supports evidence translation work, particularly around maternal and newborn health in resource-constrained settings.

 

Tari's previous work at Cochrane Australia was on SEA-URCHIN and SEA-ORCHID projects investigating whether implementation of research evidence can improve care for mothers and babies in hospitals in South East Asia; and CIPHER exploring how to support use of research by policymakers. She also worked as Senior Health Advisor at World Vision Australia.
