Personal profile

Biography

Margaret joined CeRAPH/ UC HRI in 2017.  Margaret’s expertise is in the assessment of context and implementation (i.e., intervention dose, fidelity, adaptation) in complex population health interventions and systematic reviews. She brings expertise in qualitative, realist and novel social science research methods to large-scale social epidemiological and multi-level evaluation studies. She has worked in partnership with government, not-for-profit and the Aboriginal community controlled health sector to identify and prioritise needs at local, state and national levels.  Program planning and evaluation projects have featured: childhood obesity prevention, type 2 diabetes prevention, tobacco control, Aboriginal parental engagement, Aboriginal grief and loss, and built community environments related to heart health. Margaret has worked in partnership with Aboriginal communities and organisations in Canada and Australia to address the disparities in Aboriginal health and strengthen culturally safe evaluation practice in Aboriginal settings since 1999. Margaret is a co-convenor of the Cochrane Collaboration Qualitative and Implementation Methods Group and a former convenor of the Campbell Collaboration Process and Implementation Methods Subgroup.
