Personal profile

Research interests

As an EBM expert, I have led EBM workshops for the last 20 years, and have written 3 books on evidence based practice.

I am also the Co-ordinating Editor of one of the Cochrane groups. My research helps bring evidence to Clinicians and their patients.

Statement for HDR students

My doctoral MD thesis was on skin cancer management in primary care.

To date, I have authored 300 articles in peer-reviewed journals (200 scientific papers, 97 peer-refereed editorials, and additional letters and comments), 5 books, and 22 book chapters. My h-index is 37, total citations >3,331, with 7 articles cited over 100 times. I have been awarded $14m in research grant funding (72 grants), including 3 international grants totalling $373,000.

My national and international reputation is in antibiotic overprescribing in acute respiratory infections, evidence-based medicine and systematic review, along with randomised controlled trials, in both clinical medicine and health services research.

I am currently working on a $2.5m NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence award, for which I am the Chief Investigator A, addressing antibiotic resistance emanating from primary care prescribing.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
