We are a group of researchers in Flinders University with different backgrounds that share a common interest of filling the gaps in evidence on how to use technologies to address meaningful health needs and achieve significant impact on health. We are keen on collaborating with researchers in diverse disciplines.
Matthew Flinders Fellow
Research interests in palliative care, online translation and digital health.
Medical doctor and researcher in Digital Health
My research interests are around how digital health interventions should be developed and implemented to help consumers keep track of their own health for wellness and management of chronic conditions, and how health professionals can make use of technologies to partner more effectively with consumers and make better shared decisions.
Health informatician and Engineer
Pursuing our direction towards consumer empowerment in healthcare in Flinders Digital Health Research Centre, we address a range of clinical and technology areas with a focus on Ageing and Wellness. Providing subjects of care with digital tools to help them interact with carers and self manage their health condistions, will lead to better quality of life and longer independent living.
Nurse academic and researcher
Nurses are with their patients 24 hours a day every day of the week. It is imperative that nurses have the health informatics skills to access, interpret, enter data and upload nursing care information to a variety of data bases to ensure safety quality nursing care is being delivered every time.
Physiotherapist and researcher in digital health
I believe there is so much untapped potential for the use of digital technologies in health. We have many opportunities to explore and I am passionate about working with clinicians and consumers of these technologies to co-design customisable digital tools that will meet their needs.
