Welcome to New AAAPC Members
We warmly welcome some new members from the Adelaide Rural Clinical School at the University of Adelaide! The Adelaide Rural Clinical School has been quietly working to increase primary care research capacity in rural South Australia to enable them to invest in community-engaged research. New members for AAAPC this month include:
Associate Professor Davide Gonzalez who has a background as a paediatrician and epidemiologist with experience in global public health, preventive medicine and biostatistics. He is currently coordinating a study investigating the impact of the Adelaide Rural Clinical School on the medical health workforce in rural settings. Moreover, he works on several projects that use health informatics to support primary health workers, including the analysis of big datasets (MedicineInsight, Royal Flying Doctors Service database) and the use of patient and doctors reminders for preventive activities.
Associate Professor Pascale Detwiller is an academic pharmacist based in Pt Lincoln who has significant experience in community-driven research projects, clinical audit and therapeutics. One of her current projects involves the investigation of community resilience and wellbeing in regional South Australia.
Kym Thomas is a Nukunu elder who works in Pt Augusta. He has longstanding experience in Aboriginal community development, governance and leadership. He is currently leading a research project on how local Aboriginal people experience aged care services.
Dr Sue Williams is based in Nairne, has a strong history of public health research and provides vital support to our distributed research team. She is currently coordinating a project looking at Point of Care Ultrasound in rural general practice.
