Research interests

Clinical Associate Professor Brumby has made significant contribution to research and service delivery methods for engaging farm men and women in discussion about their own health, wellbeing and safety. This is often a serious challenge for agricultural industries, farmers and rural health workers. She has led the development and implementation of the Sustainable Farm Families program since its inception in 2003 and has extended its application across a broad range of agricultural industries and community sectors across Australia. This program has been evaluated and externally evaluated and published.

Teaching interests

Clinical Associate Professor Susan Brumby teaches and assesses in the postgraduate Agricultural Health and Medicine course and guest lectures to Year 1 or 2 medical students. She also co-supervises PhD students.

Awards

Clinical Associate Professor Brumby has received numerous awards recognising her contribution to rural health and has attracted over $3 million in grants and service delivery funding. In 2005, she received the Department of Human Services Award for outstanding contribution to rural health, and in 2006 a Victorian Travelling Fellowship. In 2009 she was recognised with the Victorian Regional Achievement and Community Career and Trade Development Award.

Projects

Clinical Associate Professor Brumby's report and recommendations from the Victorian Travelling Fellowship in 2006 was instrumental in setting up the design and five key areas for the National Centre for Farmer Health. She has trained and accredited 135 health professionals in the delivery of the program in every state. She has authored over 20 publications on farmer health, rural health and engagement and currently reviews for a number of journals related to Agromedicine and rural health. She serves on the Deakin/DH/DHS Strategic Alliance (BSW Region) Research Group and numerous advisory groups.
