I recently completed my doctoral thesis titled Co-creation of a person-centered integrated digital health model of care for fragility hip fractures: a mixed methods pragmatic research for examination.
Currently I am working as a NHMRC grant funded academic researcher. I am very excited to carry forward in an evolving role with the CRE-frailty and healthy ageing since I joined as a PhD scholar in 2018. I have been working on a Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) health services research project. As an associate investigator, I was involved in undertaking research studies using pragmatic methodology involving residents of aged care facilities in South Australia, their family members and key stakeholders influencing service design and delivery. I am also involved in facilitating international collaborations on digital health model of care, integrating clinical decision support systems and consumer empowerment to reduce healthcare inequalities.
My breadth of experience encompasses working with health systems in the UK, India, and Australia. In my previous roles, I led design and implementation of health improvement initiatives in public health and health systems research, covering aspects of primary care, acute, rehabilitation and integrated health and social care. I have been involved through several initiatives, bringing together healthcare system, academic research, social enterprise, and community empowerment in the UK, India, and Australia. My understanding of co-designing and implementation of innovative solutions including contemporary digital health has evolved as I worked in different roles and areas since last 15 years. These include healthy ageing, injury and trauma, health promotion, mental health, social and commercial determinants of health, adolescent health, and oral health.
In a previous role, I contributed in the design and implementation of program of research aiming at improving the management and outcomes of orthopaedic trauma and injury in India, funded through the University of Oxford and National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia. I conceived and conducted mixed methods studies to understand ‘care seeking behaviour’ and ‘current practices for the management of hip fracture care pathway’ in India. Further, developed a theoretical framework to understand barriers and facilitators and map contextually appropriate interventions at the local setting and policy levels in order to realise effective implementation of evidence into practice.
I have demonstrated outstanding capability of- working with multidisciplinary stakeholders, project management and exceptional leadership through design and implementation of several complex and/or large-scale health improvement initiatives and programs of research.
The title of my doctoral thesis is Co-creation of a person-centered integrated digital health model of care for fragility hip fractures: a mixed methods pragmatic research.
The aim of my PhD thesis work is to conduct a program of research focused on establishing a person-centred and integrated model of care for older people with hip fractures assisted by digital health technology and modern educational approaches. The goal is to improve outcomes such as health literacy, access, functional rehabilitation, and quality of life. The model envisages an emphasis on the patient, their family members, and carers as networked units to be supported through healthcare providers, ranging from specialist services, GPs, allied health, and social care services. This incorporated advances in software development and computer science, modern education technologies, ethics, and law.
The scholarly research undertaken as part of my PhD thesis involves 6 key chapters, each of them now have been published in high impact peer-reviewed journals. During the period I utilised mix of contemporary research methodological approaches such as systematic and scoping reviews, meta-analysis, qualitative research, co-design, implementation, and behavioural sciences. Since 2019, while continuing the PhD program, I contributed to 12 published papers and presented findings from my research at several prestigious international, national, and local conferences, including the University of Oxford.
