Dr Kim Jose is a Senior Research Fellow at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research, UTAS. She is a public health practitioner and researcher whose work focuses on maximising health and wellbeing and the prevention and management of chronic disease across the life-course.  As an Investigator and Postdoctoral Research Fellow on 5 national grants (1 MRFF, 4 NHMRC) Kim’s research increasingly focuses on knowledge translation and implementation. Embedding co-production and co-design into her work Kim has extensive experience capturing the perspectives of individuals and communities on the services designed to support them, including children, young people and families experiencing disadvantage

Biography

Prior to completing her PhD at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research in 2013, Kim has worked in various roles in the health and community sectors across Australia, including as a physiotherapist, project and program manager and policy officer. In these roles Kim worked to promote the health and wellbeing of women before and after pregnancy and  implemented interventions to promote healthy eating and physical activity in children and families.  Since completing her PhD in 2013 Kim has held postdoctoral positions on three NHMRC partnership projects on health issues of concern to Tasmanians (i.e., workplace health promotion, bariatric surgery, Tasmanian early childhood services), and been an investigator on numerous other studies based at Menzies. These have included incentivising public transport use to support physical activity gain, measuring walkability in small, rural Tasmanian towns and the use of parkrun to support people living with osteoarthritis. Between February 2019 and May 2020 Kim was based at the Institute for the Study of Social Change, UTAS where she led the evaluation of the Tasmanian Child Safety Service before returning to Menzies. Kim is currently employed as a senior research fellow supporting several public health and translation projects at Menzies.

Expertise

  • Public Health
  • Research Translation and Implementation
  • Early Childhood Services
  • Physical Activity
  • Coproduction and Codesign
  • Health Promotion

Kim has highly developed qualitative and mixed methods research and analytical skills. In addition to her qualitative research skills, she has been involved as an investigator and postdoctoral fellow in two of the largest data linkage studies undertaken in Tasmania (CKD.TASlink  and the Tassie Kids studies) as well as leading the process evaluation for an RCT into increasing public transport use for physical activity gain. Kim is committed to facilitating opportunities to build co-design and consumer participation into the research process using a variety of approaches.

Research Themes

Kim’s research aligns to the University’ research theme of Better Health and Creativity, Culture and Society. Her research focuses on public health, particularly maximising health and wellbeing and the prevention and management of chronic disease across the life-course.  She is recognised for conducting high quality collaborative public health research in partnership with government, clinicians, health and education service providers, consumers and community members. Kim combines public health and social theories to inform her work and has extensive skills in capturing and synthesising the perspectives of individuals and communities on the services designed to support them, using qualitative and mixed methods, including data linkage. Wherever possible she seeks to involve consumers and community members in her work using co-design and coproduction approaches. Kim’s research has focused on understanding and addressing the complex health issues facing Tasmanians through interdisciplinary research in areas such as early childhood services in Tasmania, public transport use and health, rural environments and walkability, physical activity following stroke, the benefits and challenges of delivering school breakfast programs in Tasmania, co-designing a young adult renal and transplantation transition clinic in Tasmania, and bariatric surgery. Findings from this work have contributed to the ongoing development of Tasmania’s Child and Family Centres, the Tasmanian Child Safety Service and school food programs as well as the Kidney Health Australia Youth Program, State of the Nation Report 2019 and subsequent consensus statement. Applying public health and community participation approaches Kim is currently leading a co-design research project that will bring consumers, policy makers, health practitioners and researchers together to identify research priorities for Tasmanians living with multimorbidity. Working on 4 NHMRC partnership projects designed to understand and address various complex health issues facing Tasmanians my work is increasingly focused on knowledge translation and implementation; that is understanding how, why and under what circumstances programs and services impact on the individuals and communities they are designed to support. I am interested in better understanding how research coproduction can support this process.

Collaboration

Kim is involved in 2 nationally funded projects investigating public transport for physical activity gain and the built environment in rural towns that support walking. These are being undertaken with researchers from Deakin University and RMIT, Melbourne and University of Sydney as well as local partners. The collaboration with the University of Sydney includes public health researchers from The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre who are interested in the use of citizen science in public health research. The Communities for walkability project has been included as one of four national case studies into a research project led by researchers from the Australian Prevention Partnership Centre  investigating this approach.

Awards

  • Primary Health Care Research, Evaluation & Development (PHCRED) Travel Grants (2008 and 2011)
  • Public Health Association of Australia Award of Excellence in Public Health Studies Deakin University (2004)

Current projects

Communities for Walkability; A citizen science project to connect local spaces and places.

This study is investigating the environmental characteristics that influence walkability and physical activity in rural Tasmania using citizen science approaches.

Health by Stealth; investigating public transport use for physical activity gain.

This study has involved providing incentives (bus travel credit) to promote increased public transport use and corresponding increases in physical activity.

Co-designing a multimorbidity research program for Tasmania.

This study will bring together people living with two or more chronic conditions, carers/support people, health policy makers and decisions makers and clinicians involved in the management of people with chronic conditions to discuss and identify research priorities.

Projects

Patient and carer experiences with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma and myelodysplastic syndrome (2021)$18,017
Description
The project aims to assess the experience of patients with chronic haematologic malignancies, specifically relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and their carers. Although these conditions are treatable, they are not curable and the treatments can impose significant side effects. As they are incurable, patient quality of life and symptom burden and management are important concerns. This study will help us understand the patient experience in these areas, thereby leading to appropriate interventions and potentially better care.

Developing benchmarks and a smart online tool for assessing walkability in regional and rural communities: Supporting rural Australians to live healthy, active lives (2020 - 2021)$570,968
Description
The overall objective is to co-design with policy-makers, practitioners and community members a practical and scalable tool that enables rural communities to identify and prioritise aspects of their local built environment that impact on walkability and physical activity. This will be achieved through spatial assessments of walkability in rural areas, and engagement with end-users to design an online walkability assessment tool, collect and interpret data, and set priority areas for action. Co-design of the study with policy-makers and of the online walkability assessment tool with policy-makers, practitioners and community members vastly enhances the scalability potential of the tool, ensuring readiness for immediate rollout across regional and rural Australia and beyond.

Strong Families, Safe Kids (SFSK) Project Evaluation (2019)$97,500
Description
The Department of Communities Tasmanias Strong Families, Safe Kids (SFSK) project involved the redesign of the Child Safety Service to improve outcomes for children, young people and their families in order to ameliorate increasing numbers of notifications and occasions of statutory intervention. The SFSK project was tasked with implementing the 30 actions detailed in the Implementation Plan over four years to June 2020. The Institute for the Study of Social Change has been asked to tender for a project to evaluate the impact of SFSK, including the outcomes associated with the redesign, designing an evaluation framework to support the DCTs ongoing work through to June 2025 and advise on potential areas for future work.

Unlocking the potential of a novel setting to promote physical activity (PA) among patients with Knee Osteoarthritis (KOA) - parkrun (2018 - 2019)$31,313
Description
Participating in PA reduces pain and improves function in people with KOA. Despite this, people with KOA are alarmingly inactive. It is, therefore, of high priority to identify effective, low-cost and sustainable PA promotion strategies for KOA. parkrun is an international movement of weekly 5 km walk/run events held in public spaces. Parkrun has a broad appeal to various population groups including non-athletes, however no previous reports had evaluated parkrun as a promising PA promotion setting for KOA. Our study will determine the feasibility, acceptability and safety of parkrun as a novel strategy to promote PA for people with KOA.

Health by Stealth: Increasing Physical Activity through Active Travel in Tasmania (2018 - 2020)$282,362
Description
We are facing a global inactivity crisis. Participation in recommended amounts of physical activity (PA) has remained stagnant since the 1980s,indicating limited population-level impact of strategies to promote PA. A shift in focus from leisure-time to transport-related PA holds promiseas an attractive but under-exploited opportunity to support individuals to incorporate more activity into daily life. Healthy transport options walking, cycling and public transport are critical social determinants of health, by reducing traffic accidents, increasing social contact,reducing air pollution, and increasing exercise. Improving our understanding of travel behaviours and identifying strategies to increase use ofhealthy transport options have been identified by our three highly engaged Tasmanian Partner Organisations as important priorities. This projectseeks to generate evidence with service providers, state government and local government authorities to support decision-making and resourceallocation in relation to increasing active and public transport use. Working closely with our Partners, we will analyse data from existing datasources to better understand Tasmanians travel behaviours and the factors that influence these, by evaluating the effectiveness of two realworldfiscal strategies aiming to increase active and public transport use, and by developing and implementing a knowledge transfer strategy toensure findings are effectively communicated. This project will generate some of the first evidence internationally about the effectiveness offiscal strategies to increase active and public transport use, and will provide crucial information to directly impact the work of service providers,decision makers, policy-makers and practitioners. By identifying effective strategies to increase PA through active transport, the implications of this project have the potential to make major direct health, social, environmental and economic impacts globally.
