Allied Health Workforce, Rural Health Workforce
Professor Susan Nancarrow

Adjunct  

I have nearly 20 years’ international experience as a health services researcher with expertise in health workforce reform, service delivery and organisation. In particular, I work with health services to help them think differently about how they organise and deliver care to provide solutions to enhance health care from the patient’s perspective. I am particularly committed to regional and rural health issues, community health, and capacity building. I have been able to apply these interests and values in my executive leadership roles within the University.
As a researcher, I have collaborated on projects worth more than $40 million, of which I was the lead on approximately $7 million. These projects have impacted directly on the patient experience, service delivery and policy and led to more than 80 peer reviewed journal publications, reports and book chapters. Prior to returning to Australia in 2011, I worked in Sheffield, England for 10 years, examining workforce change in the NHS. While in the UK, I led the internal evaluation of the largest collaborative translational network partnership involving 17 service delivery and university partners (CLAHRC South Yorkshire, £20M). Recent research projects have explored the use of the NBN to provide telehealth to keep older people independent at home; primary health care integration; the use of social media to engage with health service users; and large scale health workforce mapping project in Victoria, Australia.
