- About Deakin
Bridie Murphy joined Deakin University in February 2009. Her main areas of work are assessments for the Commonwealth Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) and the Victorian Policy Advisory Committee on Clinical Practice and Technology (VPACT) drawing on previous work in systematic reviews of literature and health technologies within the Australian satellite of the Cochrane Musculoskeletal group. Previous work in clinical trials and evidence-based health care at the Department of Clinical Epidemiology at Monash University, Cabrini Hospital compliment her knowledge of evidence review and dissemination.
Bridie Murphy’s research interest focuses on Health Technology Assessment, including MSAC and VPACT assessments. Other current work includes economic evaluations alongside clinical trials assessing for effectiveness and cost-effectiveness using trial-based evaluation and modelled economic evaluation of longer term impacts in areas including the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, psychosocial health after cancer diagnosis and a comparison of treatment methods for infant dehydration in hospital.
