Research interests

Dr Passey is a medical graduate trained in epidemiology and public health. She has worked internationally and in rural Australia, academically and within government health services in both policy development and implementation roles. She blends this understanding of health services and systems with her research expertise to undertake health services research particularly in relation to complex interventions. For example, her report and recommendations of the Magistrates Early Referral into Treatment program were incorporatied in the subsequent programm roll-out across NSW, and then in the development of national policy. As an academic she has developed her interest in mixed methods health services research, incorporating both qualitative and quantitative methods. Her interest in health behaviour and chronic disease prevention is reflected in her current projects on the prevention of cardiovascular disease (NHMRC), economic impacts of chronic disease (ARC-linkage) and the development of a program to support pregnant Aboriginal women to quit smoking.
