Research Biography

Research Fellow Brooke Spaeth is an Implementation Scientist who conducts research focused on identifying and addressing healthcare inequity, particularly for people living in rural and remote locations. Brooke has strong expertise in implementation, translation and policy development in the field of Point-of-Care testing across acute, chronic and infectious disease. 

Brooke currently leads a $2.96 million Medical Research Future Fund project titled 'Equitable Access to Full Blood Examination Testing at the Point-of-Care in Remote Primary Health' which aims to expand Point-of-Care testing in the Northern Territory to include a full blood count to improve the detection and treatment of sepsis.
