My research motivation is to generate scientific evidence that will help guide clinical practice and inform health policy. In pharmacoepidemiology, my studies focus on the use of medicines for smoking cessation and chronic conditions in pregnancy and their safety. In health services research and evaluation, I've involved in the national evaluation of the Health Care Homes program - a Federal primary care initiative to improve health and well-being of community dwelling people with chronic health conditions. The evaluation findings will directly inform the Australia's Primary Health Care 10 Year Plan 2022-2032. The 'Join Us' research participant register that I am a co-investigator is a national research resource to engage many Australian adults in health and medical research to boost research productivity, efficiency and patient outcomes. The evaluation of patient compliance to telephone triage advice informed quality of care provided by Healthdirect Australia- a national not-for-profit organisation that provides virtual health services to Australians.

Evidence of research translation from prior project includes the implementation of the Substance Use Screen Policy, patient falls risk assessment tool and check lists for daily nursing clinical handovers in facilities in the South Western Sydney Local Health District. Recommendations for innovative models of nursing care were considered by the NSW Chief Nursing Officer for further development and implementation. Findings in systematic reviews on avoidable hospital readmission indicators were used by the Australian Commission for Safety and Quality in Health Care.
