In addition to helping carry out the strategic vision of the EQUATOR network in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, the Australasian EQUATOR Centre’s focus is on reducing waste and enhancing the value of biomedical research.

Examples of our current activities include:



Professor Tammy Hoffmann, Co-Director

Professor Tammy Hoffmann

Tammy is Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice, Bond University. Her research spans many aspects of evidence-based practice, shared decision making, knowledge translation, and minimising waste in research. Tammy has been involved in the development of a number of reporting guidelines. As part of her interest in improving the reporting, useability, and uptake of effective non-pharmacological interventions, she led the development of the TIDieR (Template for Intervention Description and Replication) checklist and guide.

Professor Paul Glasziou, Co-Director

Professor Paul Glasziou
