Gillian Gorham is the Manager of the Renal Research Program at Menzies School of Health. Her work and that of the program, has a strong focus on evidence translation and the implementation of research findings into policy and practice. Gillian has a keen interest in evaluating models of renal care to identify ways to improve service integration, health outcomes and the experiences of individuals with kidney disease. This work spans from how chronic kidney disease is identified, monitored and managed in the community, to the cost-effectiveness of dialysis services in different locations. Gillian currently leads the development of a clinical decision support tool that consolidates clinical information from government and non-government health services to support the delivery of integrated care for people with complex chronic diseases. She has worked at the local and national level to develop strategic documents for the delivery of renal services. Publications include government reports, strategic plans and peer reviewed manuscripts. Gillian is currently completing a PhD on the comparative costs and benefits of dialysis models of care in urban, rural and remote locations.
