Dr Sabrina Pit
NHMRC Research Fellow
E50 - E50a Admin Bldg. Lismore
Sabrina has extensive experience in analysing large datasets and administrative datasets. She developed her interest in healthy ageing whilst interviewing hostel residents about polypharmacy and quality of life, a study that was part of her Dutch Masters of Agriculture & Natural Environment. During her PhD she conducted an NHMRC funded cluster randomized controlled trial which improved the use of medicines and reduced falls among older people through changing GPs' behaviour.
In 2008, Sabrina was awarded a 4 year Postdoctoral NHMRC Research Training Fellowship to continue her research in "Ageing well and productively: Pathways to healthy workforce participation and care giving." She is currently investigating the relationship between socio-economic, behavioural, environmental & health-related factors & workforce & retirement. To date, she has produced 14 refereed publications, 6 reports & 12 conference papers and is a Cochrane reviewer ("Exercise for positive mental health outcomes in adults").
