My PhD looks at overall access to care for our paediatric cardiac patients across the state and empowering primary care providers to help address the problem of patients' distance to the cardiac care unit in Brisbane. This also lines up with a new initiative in the cardiac unit at the Queensland Children's Hospital to establish a clinical care network for our cardiac patients across the state.
My research will consider a comparative analysis of existing international Atrial Fibrillation screening strategies, their relatability to the Australian health system, and assess the cost-effectiveness of different AF screening strategies in Australia.
Consumer Preferences for Neurodevelopmental Follow-up Care for Children with Congenital Heart Disease
My research investigates parent and clinician preferences for a neurodevelopmental model of care to improve outcomes for children with congenital heart disease (CHD) in order to improve how models of care are designed and delivered.
Implementation activities are not often costed and there aren’t many approaches to cost implementation. This can lead to inefficient use of scarce healthcare resources. My PhD aims to address this need by developing an implementation costing tool to help with estimating the true cost of implementing digital health solutions in hospitals.
A police campaign targeting e-Scooter offenders being launched this week could help set new trends in both hospital emergency department presentations and e-mobility uptake, according to the Jamieson Trauma Institute's e-Scooter Project team.
AusHSI researchers have identified a way of more quickly determining the risk of a heart attack for Indigenous patients, which could fast-track their treatment and ease hospital overcrowding.
A Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE) is a method used to elicit individual preferences for different aspects of services, programs, or products. Learn how DCEs are being used in Health Services Research to understand how choices are made and predict future choice responses.
