Michelle Tew is a health economics researcher at the Centre for Health Policy, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. Her research interests include economic evaluation and modelling, health services utilisation, prescription medications and using patient-reported outcomes to guide value-based care.
Her current research project focuses on the health economics of infections in cancer patients and patients undergoing lower limb arthroplasty. Her research aims to maximise the use of longitudinal data to better understand patterns of health outcomes and health service use, and to develop and test economic evaluation methods to provide valuable input and better inform health policy decisions.
Michelle has demonstrated her strengths as a collaborator though her network of active collaborations, both nationally and internationally, with the National Centre for Infections in Cancer at the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, The Royal Melbourne Hospital and (Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre), St. Vincent’s Hospital, University of Toronto and University of Oxford. She is also a key member of the team providing economic evaluation for the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) at the Department of Health to inform decisions about listing of new Medicare items. Michelle completed her postgraduate training in Public Health specialising in Health Economics and Economic Evaluation at the University of Melbourne and in Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham. Prior to her research role, she has worked as a pharmacist in the UK where she has gained extensive experience in the safe delivery of medications, patient care and in the provision of various pharmacy services.
