Overview

OverviewText1

  • I am a clinically active academic GP with research interests in the optimal use of medications for people with diabetes, blood glucose monitoring and the use of general practice datasets to assess diabetes management, evaluate models of care and develop systems to provide decision support to assist GPs with their work. Following completion of my PhD in 2015 I have been successful in being appointed to a continuing teaching and research post in the Department of General Practice and now aim to build a team that will be at the forefront of validating and developing new innovations for the use of GP datasets and decision support in general practice. I have experience in mixed methods research which has developed since beginning my research career as an academic GP registrar in 2010. This is reflected in a number of successful grant applications and publications in peer reviewed journals. I am active in disseminating the results of research, providing seminars to GPs, practice nurses and diabetes educators as well as education sessions based on the research that I have been involved in developing and implementing. I have contributed to the development of the RACGP Diabetes Guidelines as an active member of the RACGP National Faculty of Specific Interests - Diabetes Network and to local diabetes guidelines and services as part of my role as GP advisor to the Melbourne Primary Health Network Diabetes Group. My work has been presented at both national and international conferences including ADS-ADEA, RACGP, Primary Health Care Research Conference, General Practice Education and Training Conference, North American Primary Care Research Group and the International Diabetes Federation World Diabetes Congress. I have a strong belief in multidisciplinary collaboration in both my research and clinical work. Promoting multidisciplinary collaboration and learning amongst healthcare professionals in primary care is one of my key aims as a Board member for the Primary Care Diabet
