Bio

Tammy is Professor of Clinical Epidemiology and directs the Centre for Evidence-Informed Health Decisions at the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice, Bond University. Her research spans many aspects of shared decision making, knowledge translation, evidence-based practice, informed health decisions, and minimising waste in research. She has over 200 publications, including multiple articles in leading journals such as JAMA, BMJ, and JAMA Internal Medicine. She is also the lead author of a widely used inter-disciplinary evidence-based practice book (Evidence-Based Practice across the Health Professions), that is now in its 3rd edition. She is currently leading international initiatives in two main areas: 1) to more closely align shared decision making and evidence-based practice, and assist patients and the public to make evidence-informed decisions about health, and 2) to improve the reporting and uptake of effective non-pharmacological interventions into practice (including development of the TIDieR statement).
