Biography

Alison is a Senior Research Fellow in the Health Systems Improvement Unit at Deakin University. She recently completed an ARC-post doctoral fellowship on the project “Enhancing Health Literacy to optimise health equality across Victorian communities”. Her role was to manage this large project (named Ophelia Victoria), which involved collaborating with 9 healthcare sites throughout Victoria to support them in applying a new approach to intervention development and implementation. Currently, Alison is CI on a large project in collaboration with BreastScreen Victoria and the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services which uses health literacy as a means to optimising engagement in breast screening for the diverse community living in North West Melbourne.

In her role as Senior Research Fellow, Alison aims to strengthen the evidence-base for the determinants of health inequalities, and to develop methods for identifying which types of healthcare interventions contribute to socioeconomic gradients in health outcomes. Alison was a NHMRC scholar in the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine at Monash University and was awarded her PhD in 2011. Prior to undertaking her PhD, Alison was a Registered Nurse with an extensive cardiac portfolio. This clinical background provides her with a unique perspective on addressing the challenges associated with implementing new interventions in healthcare settings. She currently co-supervises five PhD students, and has a strong track record relative to opportunity. Her growing international profile is evidenced by invitations to present her work in Australia the UK, the US and Asia.
