Asst. Prof. Anna Scott
Anna is an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Research in Evidence Based Practice at Bond University. Her background is in Philosophy, Epidemiology and Health Technology Assessment. Her research primarily focuses on evidence generation and methodological development in two aspects of robust health policy decision-making: evidence syntheses (e.g. systematic reviews) needed to make sound, evidence-informed decisions; and the involvement of community members in those decisions. She also works on issues in waste in research (in particular, research governance).
