OVERVIEW OF EXPERTISE IN RELATION TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK AND IMPACT

I have experience in older persons mental health and nursing home interventions, as well as social isolation in older populations. Mental health is key in older populations, and I have extensive experience in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of late-life anxiety, which is more prevalent in older people than depression and likely to be rising due to COVID-19. Ageism as well as ethical decision making with respect to old age are also areas of expertise.

COVID-19 Expert Database

The COVID-19 Expert Database has been created to provide a mechanism for governments, the business sector, the research sector, and other decision-makers to easily access the expertise they need to inform their decision making.


Australia’s ability to navigate this fast-changing environment and to recover from it needs inputs from a range of researchers and other experts. All fields of expertise including: science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health, humanities, arts, and social science are needed.
