I am an academic general practitioner, currently Professor of Public Health. Formerly Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research), and simultaneously Dean of Health Sciences and Medicine at Bond University – where I successfully started the first private Australian university medical program – I was previously Professor of General Practice at the University of Queensland.
A well-known evidence-based practice expert, I have written 3 books on this, and am Co-ordinating Editor of the Cochrane Acute Respiratory Infections group. My research helps translate research into clinical practice, using meta-analysis, as well as primary research methods, and has influenced prescribing worldwide for acute respiratory infection.
