Other publications

I have a number of non-peer reviewed publications. Although not peer-reviewed, these are among some of my highest impact publications, because they allow my research to be implemented by health professionals, and understood by the general public. These include summaries of my research, for professional publications and online sources such as The Conversation. These publications are an important and successful way to communicate the methods, results and implications of my research in a way that both practicing clinicians and the general public can understand and and consider. In addition, I have a number of publications, particularly clinical practice guidelines, which were designed to translate the best available evidence into actionable recommendations for clinicians, which I was involved in developing during my time at the National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre (now Cancer Australia).
