Research interests

Over the 15 years prior to taking up the position of Dean of Students, Professor Marshall undertook a major role in health promotion workforce capacity building in Victoria, and in developing health promotion strategic and program planning within the primary health care sector. This involved workforce training in health promotion; mentoring health professionals; developing frameworks for effective health promotion program planning and evaluation; and supporting networks and alliances to better plan, deliver and evaluate health promotion programs at district and regional levels. Organisations and programs involved in this work included community health services, women’s health, local government, Divisions of General Practice, school nursing services, drug and alcohol programs, mental health services, neighbourhood renewal programs, youth services, primary care partnerships, sexual health services, and a broad range of non-government organisations. He developed two leadership and capacity building programs for the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation. The first related to primary prevention of violence against women, for which he received the 2010 VicHealth Award for Participation and Skill Development. The second program was in the area of reducing race-based discrimination and promoting diversity in the community.

He has also worked for a number of years with the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health in Vietnam to increase health promotion capacity within that country. This focussed on working with a broad range of sectors, including health, education, agriculture, police, urban and rural development, transport, and mass organisations (such as the Women’s Union and the Youth Union) to develop greater understanding of, and skills in, health promotion and public health, and to increase partnerships between these sectors around identified priority health issues.

Professor Marshall has also worked in the area of school health for nearly 25 years, originally from within the education sector as a consultant in health education and curriculum development. Since joining Deakin, he has undertaken a broad range of research and consultancies in school health.
