Research Biography

Dr Lalit Yadav is looking for opportunties to foster collaborative efforts and contribute in advancing health and medical research focused on improving care throughout the spectrum of life course. In the current role as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Knowledge Translation Enabling Theme) at the Caring Futures Institute, he is working with the research leaders at the Flinders University to help further evolve methodologies, aiming to improve health and care outcomes through effective translation of evidence into practice and policy, requiring complex transdisciplinary approaches.

Initially trained as a dental surgeon, he has considerable experience of working as a public health practitioner in diverse settings, globally. Recently, his PhD from the University of Adelaide, initiated a program of research, thesis titled "Co-creation of a person-centred integrated digital health model of care for fragility hip fractures: a mixed methods pragmatic research”. This doctoral thesis conceptualised Digital Health Hub (DHH) model of care and introduced a new role, Telehealth Liaison Carer (TLC) which can be further co-designed and translated into different settings focused on multimorbidity care.

The width of his experience, spans over 15 years, having worked in the UK, India, and Australia and contributed to development of innovative models of care aiming to reduce inequalities in healthcare. Previously, he led design and implementation of health improvement initiatives in multiple areas of health, covering aspects of primary care, acute, rehabilitation and integrated health and social care. He closely worked in partnership with health service delivery organisations, academic research, social enterprises, voluntary sector, and public-private partnerships. These projects were funded through MRFF and NHMRC in Australia, Australia India Strategic Research Grant, Australia-India Council, BMGF, WHO, UK Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England.

Research Expertise

In my previous roles, I led design and implementation of health improvement initiatives in public health and health systems research, covering aspects of primary care, acute, rehabilitation and integrated health and social care. I have been involved through several initiatives, bringing together healthcare system, academic research, social enterprise, and community empowerment in the UK, India, and Australia. My understanding of co-designing and implementation of innovative solutions including contemporary digital health has evolved as I worked in different roles and areas since last 15 years. These include healthy ageing, injury and trauma, health promotion, mental health, social and commercial determinants of health, adolescent health, and oral health.

The title of my doctoral thesis was "Co-creation of a person-centered integrated digital health model of care for fragility hip fractures: a mixed methods pragmatic research". The aim of this thesis work was to initiate a program of research focused on establishing a person-centred and integrated model of care for older people with hip fractures (with multimorbidity) assisted by digital health technology and modern educational approaches. The goal is to improve outcomes such as health literacy, access, functional rehabilitation, and quality of life. The model envisages an emphasis on the patient, their family members, and carers as networked units to be supported through healthcare providers, ranging from specialist services, GPs, allied health, and social care services. This incorporated advances in software development and computer science, modern education technologies, ethics, and law. 

The scholarly research undertaken as part of my PhD thesis involves 6 key chapters, each of them now have been published in high impact peer-reviewed journals.  During the period I utilised mix of contemporary research methodological approaches such as systematic review and meta-analysis, qualitative research, co-design, implementation, and behavioural sciences. 

Therefater, I worked on a Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) health services research project. As an associate investigator, I was involved in undertaking research studies using pragmatic methodology involving residents of aged care facilities in South Australia, their family members and key stakeholders influencing service design and delivery. Further, I am also involved in facilitating international collaborations on digital health model of care, integrating clinical decision support systems and consumer empowerment to reduce healthcare inequalities. This includes a recent grant funded through Australia-India Council (Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) project titled "VirtuCare: co-designing disability-inclusive virtual healthcare and rehabilitation in India".
