Olivia Mitchell

 

Dr Olivia Mitchell holds a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours and a Ph.D in Pharmacology from the University of Melbourne and is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. From 2006 to 2010, Olivia worked as a Business Manager and Product Specialist in the Pharmaceutical Industry in Melbourne and Sydney.

From 2010 to 2015 Olivia managed the Neuromodulation Deep Brain Stimulation sales portfolio for St. Jude Medical in Victoria, where she developed knowledge and expertise in dominant health care practices. In 2015, Olivia accepted a research-focused position in the culturally inclusive rural health care stream of research at The University of Melbourne Department of Rural Health (DRH), based in Shepparton, Victoria. This role harnesses the expertise and capabilities Olivia developed as an industry professional to assist rural health services to improve their processes and policies to become responsive to and inclusive of all groups within the communities they serve. Olivia is currently involved in several research and community engagement projects exploring how mainstream organisations undertake processes of change in order to become more inclusive and responsive to diverse populations. Olivia has special interests in organisational change within healthcare, cultural inclusion and improving access to health care for marginalised populations. Her research focus is to understand and identify systemic processes for how a 'mainstream' rural health service can be inclusive and culturally appropriate for all clients/patients.
