Teaching Areas:

Master of Health Informatics
COMP805  Health Informatics and the Health Sector

Research Areas:

Disaster management. Disaster E-health. Privacy and e-consent, electronic health records, tele- and mobile health strategy, change management, healthcare data quality

Research Summary:

Over the past decade my research interests have spanned two fields; e-health and disaster management. More recently, these interests have combined to develop a new paradigm, disaster e-health (DEH), that applies information and e-health technologies to achieve a dramatic improvement in the quality and appropriateness of disaster health planning, response, and recovery. Key research questions concern inter-agency communication and terminology, the data sets used by agencies in disaster situations, the selection of appropriate e-health technologies to improve DEH, protocols for their application, and their integration with existing care processes.

Current Research Projects:

Connected Strategies and Knowledge Transfer for Disaster Healthcare and Resilience
