Biographical details

Associate Professor Allison Tong is a Principal Research Fellow at the Sydney School of Public Health, The University of Sydney. She holds an Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Career Development Fellowship. She is a social scientist and has experience in using applied qualitative research methods to the area of chronic disease; to inform practice and policy for improved patient-centred outcomes. Allison has a particular interest and experience in stakeholder engagement (including patients and consumers) in the context of research priority setting and the development of core outcomes for research. She co-founded and is on the Executive Committee of the global Standardised Outcomes in Nephrology (SONG) Initiative, which aims to establish consensus-based core outcomes across the spectrum of chronic kidney disease (www.songinitiative.org). Allison developed the consolidated criteria for reporting qualitative health research (COREQ), and the enhancing transparency in reporting the synthesis of qualitative health research [ENTREQ]; which are both endorsed as key reporting guidelines by leading journals and by the international EQUATOR Network for promoting the transparency of health research. She has taught qualitative health research methods internationally for government and university institutions including Stanford University, Mayo Clinic, and The University of Calgary.
