Dr Kim Jose is a Post Doctoral Research Fellow at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research. She is interested in the prevention and management of chronic disease, particularly the role physical activity plays in the prevention and management of chronic disease across the life course. She has a growing interest in decision making around health care and health service delivery.

Biography

Kim has had a varied and diverse career working as a clinical physiotherapist (with an interest in women's health) in the acute, community and private sectors throughout Australia. Following completion of her Masters in Public Health in 2006 she broadened her work to areas of health promotion, prevention and community development. This involved working in Neighbourhood Houses and as Project Manager for programs promoting healthy eating and physical activity with parents of primary school age children.  Kim commenced her PhD in 2008 'Maintaining participation in physical activity during the transition from adolescence to adulthood: a mixed methods study' and spent 12 months working as the Physical Activity Policy and Program within the Department of Health and Human Services Tasmania during this time. Following a return to academia Kim completed her PhD in 2013. Since that time Kim has been involved in research into workplace health promotion, research partnerships, Child and Family Centres in Tasmania and Bariatric Surgery. Kim has an interest in applied research, particularly around service delivery and chronic disease prevention and the use of mixed methods.

Research Themes

Kim's research aligns with the University's Better Health research theme. Her research interest lies in the area of public and primary health with a particular interest in physical activity, health promotion and chronic disease prevention across the life course as well as a growing interest in health service delivery and partnership working. Kim is currently involved in a research project that involves working in partnership with policy makers in the Departments of Health & Human Services (DHHS) and Premier and Cabinet, clinicians at the Royal Hobart Hospital, researchers at the Menzies Institute of Medical Research and academics at the University of Tasmania, to address pressing policy questions about appropriate public hospital service provision for severe obesity, the role of primary health care professionals in weight management pre and post-surgery and current and potential resource implications. Kim is also working with the Telethon Kids' Institute on an evaluation of the Tasmanian Child and Family Centres 'Engaging, supporting and working with children and families in Child and Family Centres' use and experiences of preschool services and supports in Tasmania's Child and Family Centres'. Kim's particular area of expertise is in qualitative and mixed methods research methodologies in public health and primary care.

Collaboration

Kim is currently also working with the Telethon Kids Institute on a project evaluating Tasmanian Child and Family Centres. This project has been a partnership between the Tasmanian Department of Education, Telethon Kids Institute, Tasmanian Early Years Foundation and the Menzies Institute for Medical Research. The findings have the potential to influence policy and practice in the early years at a National and International level.

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

Kim is currently working on a Bariatric Surgery research project that aims to address policy questions about appropriate public hospital service provision for severe obesity and the role of primary health care professionals in weight management pre and post-surgery. Kim is leading two research areas within this project. Firstly, a longitudinal qualitative research study with public bariatric surgery patients that is aiming to better understand the impact of being on the waiting list for surgery on patient outcomes (e.g. health and social). The second qualitative study is investigating the role of GPs and the decision making process about bariatric surgery from the perspective of the practitioner and patient.

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.

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.
