She is coordinating a program of research which will establish an STI and BBV sentinel surveillance network and contribute to continuing quality improvement in Aboriginal health services. She is also involved in related data linkage activities in the area of BBVs and treatment outcomes. In the field of injury research, Clare’s ongoing research interests primarily focus on injury outcomes, serious injury in early childhood, and falls surveillance and prevention.
