Personal profile

Research interests

I lead the Centre for Evidence-Informed Health Decisions. Our research is primarily focussed on helping people to make informed decisions about health – including health professionals, patients, and the public. 

The research that is aimed at health professionals includes developing and evaluating strategies and tools to increase the awareness and usability of evidence about interventions and skills for incorporating this into conversations with patients.

The Centre’s interdisciplinary research draws upon the areas of shared decision making, evidence-based practice, health communication, knowledge translation, and public health.

Statement for HDR students

I am very happy to supervise HDR research projects in topics relevant to my research areas. 

Examples of some previous and current HDR projects: 

Shared decision making and informed health decisions:
  • Developing and trialling an online decision aid to help parents of children with autism spectrum disorder make informed intervention decisions 
  • Exploring new ways of communicating antibiotic benefits and harms to patients and caregivers. 
  • Helping the public to make informed health care decisions by training consumers and high school students in how to evaluate research about treatments 
  • Training health professionals in shared decision making skills 
  • Using visual communication of intervention benefits and harms to enhance informed consent 
Methodological research to improve the reporting, synthesis and implementation of evidence:
  • Analysing the effective components of a complex intervention (exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation) and methods to improve implementation 
  • Improving the efficiency of systematic reviewing
