Zephanie Tyack – Senior Research Fellow: Implementation Science

Zephanie is a health services researcher and implementation scientist who has worked in research-related positions in hospital and health services and university settings.

Her background as a clinical occupational therapist has led to her expertise evaluating the effectiveness of innovative treatments and models of care in burns, trauma and rehabilitation settings using clinical trials. Zephanie also evaluates the implementation of evidence in real world settings to apply in clinical practice.

Zephanie’s research focuses on generating high quality evidence of the effectiveness of physical and mental health interventions and systematically examining how to best translate that evidence into real world settings.

Zephanie supervises implementation science research fellows and higher degree students conducting research to understand patient adherence to complex treatments and mental health needs in regional and rural communities. She continues to work with clinical researchers to evaluate the implementation of trauma-informed care, shared clinical decision making with patients, and implementation strategies to optimise the value of health care.
