Research Themes

Dr Gall's research is in the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease such as heart disease and stroke, which falls within the University's research theme of Better Health. Epidemiology originated with the investigation of epidemics of infectious disease but modern epidemiology encompasses studying the distribution and determinants of disease in populations. Dr Gall is particularly interested in the epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases across the life course. That is, she examines things that might cause disease over long periods of time, such as from childhood to adulthood.

Much of her research has been conducted on a unique longitudinal study called the Childhood Determinants of Adult Health (CDAH) study. This study began in 1985 with a nation-wide assessment of the health and fitness of 8,500 school children all around Australia. When these children reached their 20s, they were followed up in health clinics all around Australia to gather information on their cardiovascular health and health behaviours. Within this study, Dr Gall has shown the detrimental effects of exposure to parental smoking in childhood on offspring smoking and their vascular health; the positive effect that upward educational mobility can have on healthy lifestyle and the links between healthy lifestyles and cardiovascular risk factors in young adults.

At the other end of the age spectrum, Dr Gall is interested in understanding the influences on outcomes after suffering a cardiovascular event, particularly stroke. Her work in this area has mostly used data from Australia's longest running study of stroke, the North East Melbourne Stroke Incidence Study (NEMESIS) that is coordinated by researchers at Monash University in Melbourne. Dr Gall's research has revealed that management of risk factors after stroke is in many cases sub-optimal with high levels of untreated hypertension, low levels of smoking cessation and limited treatment of depression with medications. She is particularly interested in the differences between recovery after stroke in men and women and is coordinating an international collaboration that is bringing together data on over 10,000 people with stroke including their levels of survival, disability and quality of life up to 5 years after their stroke.

Collaboration

Dr Gall works on a range of research projects in Tasmania, nationally and internationally. Current collaborative projects include:

The role of school engagement in adult health and wellbeing

Dr Gall is lead investigator for this interdisciplinary collaboration of epidemiologists, health psychologists (Drs Benjamin and Natalie Schuz, UTAS), psychiatrists (Prof George Patton, Uni Melb) and educational sociologists (Prof Joan Abbott-Chapman, UTAS) to examine the role of school engagement on later health using data from the Childhood Determinants of Adult Health Study.

Non-communicable disease surveillance in Viet Nam

Dr Gall is a co-investigator on this major international project funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies (USD 2.5 million) that comprised a national risk factor survey and stroke registries. The study team included A/Prof Leigh Blizzard (UTAS), A/Prof Velandai Srikanth and Prof Amanda Thrift (Monash) and local experts from the Minstry of Health and Pham Ngoc Thach Medical University.

Sex differences in long term outcome after stroke

Dr Gall established this individual data pooling study comprising 13 of the 18 stroke incidence studies with long term outcome data worldwide (~8,000 strokes). Collaborators include Amanda Thrift (Monash Uni), Mathew Reeves (Michigan State University), Dominique Cadilhac (Monash University).

REDucing Delays In aneurysmal Subarachnoid Haemorrhage: the REDDISH study (2018 - 2020)$436,023
Description
Aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH) is a rare form of stroke that kills up to 40% of sufferers within 1 month. Outcome can be improved through quickly receiving medical care but many people do not and this likely contributes to the poor outcomes. The REDucing Delays In Subarachnoid Haemorrhage (REDDISH) study will look at cases of aSAH across Tasmanian and Victoria so that we can understand the factors that contribute to delays in treatment and ultimately improve outcomes.

CArdiac REhabilitation for the Secondary prevention of Stroke (CARESS) (2018)$10,000
Description
Most strokes are caused by common modifiable risk factors including hypertension, smoking, overweight and physical inactivity. The management of these risk factors is paramount for reducing likelihood of further cardiovascular events. Current treatment guidelines state that a general practitioner should manage the prevention of another stroke. Our own research shows that the management of risk factors is currently suboptimal, with few stroke survivors having well controlled hypertension, many continuing to smoke, most being inactive and many having suboptimal pharmacotherapies.Our overall aim is to improve the secondary prevention of cardiovascular events in people who have suffered stroke through the use of an adapted cardiac rehabilitation program. These programs are known to reduce recurrent cardiac events in a cost-effective way. The aims of this particular study are to:1. Adapt the current Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) cardiac rehabilitation program for use in stroke patients by observing and mapping the current program and holding a workshop with stroke clinicians, nurses and rehabilitation specialists, as well as stroke survivors and their carers to adapt the program to their needs; 2. Run a pilot of the adapted cardiac rehabilitation program in a group of stroke patients to examine its feasibility, acceptability and effect on cardiovascular risk factors and health-related quality of life.

Exposure to passive smoke in Tasmanian children: determinants, outcomes and changes over time (2018)$24,620
Description
There are two unique datasets available within Tasmania that provide us with an opportunity be better understand the causes and consequences of passive smoking among children the Tasmanian Infant Health Study (TIHS) and the Conception to Community (C2C) study. The TIHS began in the late 1980s to investigate the causes of sudden infant death syndrome. The study involved recruitment of mothers while they were pregnant gathering extensive data on passive smoke exposure from mothers and fathers. The babies that were born in this study have been followed up several times during their life and are now aged 27 years. The C2C study includes all births among Tasmanian women from 2008 to 2014 with an expected total number of participants being more than 35,000. This study uses data linkage of health and other administrative records from mothers and babies from gestation through to early life providing a comprehensive picture of health and development. These two datasets offer a unique opportunity to examine passive smoke exposure among Tasmanian infants and children including prevalence of exposure, changes in exposure and health effects of exposure. This project will analyse data from these project to address gaps in our understanding of passive smoke exposure in children.

Early markers of pre-clinical and clinical HF during the transition to middle-adulthood (2018)$20,000
Description
The aims are to explore the risk factors, including blood pressure, from childhood and young adulthood that predict the risk of developing clinical and pre-clinical heart failure in later life. It builds upon my previous work by validating whether a heart failure prediction algorithm that includes blood pressure in older adults applies to younger adults.

Promoting Health Literacy in Tasmanian Primary Schools - Evaluating the HealthLit4Kids pilot study. (2017)$9,912
Description
Preventative health project, empowering teachers and students to explore, discuss, design and share resources capable of improving Health/Literacy of Tasmanian school children and their families.The HealthLit4Kids pilot study has been designed and run by the Lead researchers during 2017 in Blackmans Bay Primary School, Tasmania, as part of a planned mixed method, multi-stage project. Health literacy is the ability to access, understand and apply information about healthy lifestyle choices that influence health behaviours and outcomes throughout the life course. Tasmania has low rates of literacy and health literacy; morbidity and mortality statistics are some of the worst in Australia. Therefore promoting and developing Health Literacy at the primary school level is of the utmost importance. This is best done through research partnerships with schools, teachers, parents and community organisations. This project has so far been resourced and supported by the lead researchers, school principal and teachers and a number of local community organisations. Following preparatory teacher workshops a comprehensive School Action Plan was developed. Innovative classroom teaching took place during July, August and September in all year grades, on a variety of Health Literacy topics related the Australian National Curriculum, Health and Physical Education. These classroom activities aimed to introduce to children culturally, socially and age group relevant Health Literacy concepts and their practical applications. Qualitative evidence of students engagement and learning outcomes will be evaluated by teachers and researchers during a Health Literacy competition to be held 24 September to 4 October. Now CCS funding is sought for a paid Research Assistant who is needed in order to help the expanded research team analyse data already gathered and planned, including a parents survey, focus group and final teacher workshop. Lessons learned about effective Health Literacy teaching strategies and resources modelled in the pilot need to be critically examined, analysed and documented in preparation for a broader project to be conducted in other primary schools in 2018, pending external grant funding.

Cardiometabolic risk trajectories from childhood to midlife: finding pathways to better health (2017 - 2020)$1,531,986
Description
Using data from a large cohort of Australian children followed for over 30 years, this study will investigate how weight status and physical fitness from childhood to adulthood determine early markers of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes (cardiometabolic disease) in midlife. It will provide much needed evidence to address the high prevalence of cardiometabolic disease risk factors in young Australians through better targeted disease prevention and early clinical intervention strategies.

Understanding cardiovascular disease across the life course (2015 - 2018)$448,000
Description
The project presents a series of epidemiological studies that aim to improve the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease in understudied populations including young adults, women and those with atrial fibrillation. The studies fall under two themes: 1) Understanding the determinants of cardiovascular health in young adults; and 2) Improving outcome for those who suffer cardiovascular disease. Theme 1 focuses on factors that modify the association between childhood risk factors and cardiovascular health in young adults, including passive smoking, family history of cardiovascular disease and social disadvantage. Data are from the few longitudinal studies worldwide with information on cardiovascular health from childhood to adulthood. Theme 2 aims to improve outcomes of cardiovascular disease. One study will identify the factors contributing to poor outcomes after stroke for women using an innovative study that brings together data on over 8,000 strokes across Australasia, Europe, South America and the USA. The final study will use data from the first register of the management and outcomes of atrial fibrillation in Australia, again focusing on how to make outcomes more equal for men and women. The research is important because the groups to be studied are predicted to carry an increasing burden of cardiovascular disease in the future and this research will inform new ways to prevent and manage these diseases thereby reducing their burden.
