I am driven to ensure that Australia has a sustainable health system which promotes the safe and efficient use of medicines with equitable access for all Australians.
Jodie is an experienced pharmacist, pharmacoepidemiologist, researcher and project manager. She has worked on complex projects that have delivered impact at state, national and international level.
Jodie’s passion is embedding Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) across the Australian health sector. She was awarded a PhD by the University of South Australia for her work in developing indicators for evaluating medication-related quality of care in Australian residential aged care.
Jodie has continued to focus on QUM with further research focused on evaluation of medication use in the aged care sector including pharmacy practice and health policy.
Including working for Evohealth, Jodie is a Research Fellow (Epidemiologist) at UniSA for a NHMRC grant on post-marketing surveillance of biologic medicines and co-chair of the Knowledge and Translation portfolio for the Centre of Research Excellence in Medicines Intelligence at UniNSW.
What you won't learn from my bio
I have an extraordinary sense of smell (hyperosmia). My children think I am a blood hound.
