Personal profile

Public Profile

David has interests in applying behavioural science, epidemiology and health economics to improve patient and community health outcomes. In his time with SA Health he enjoyed extensive involvement on the South Australian Burden of Disease study and systematically describing aspects of health risk and healthy life expectancy throughout South Australia. Working with Aboriginal Health in SAHMRI is enabling him to  more directly examine how health system activities link with effective, efficient and equitable change in health outcomes. To date this has involved piloting an advanced cancer data system (ACaDS) within the NH&MRC Cancer Data and Aboriginal Disparities (CanDAD) partnership project. ACaDS will support the comprehensive monitoring of cancer incidence trends, cancer management and survival among Aboriginal South Australians with the ulitmate aim of achieving equitable outcomes after cancer diagnosis. Most recently David joined the Centre for Research Excellence in Aboriginal Sexual Health and Blood Borne Viruses within the Aboriginal Health Equity theme to help establish a sentinel surveillance system monitoring testing and diagnosis data, principally with Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services.
