Personal profile


Dr Mitchell Sarkies is a post-doctoral researcher with a focus on health services research, implementation science, and health economics. He has developed and applied several novel study designs to health services research, including a non-inferiority stepped wedge randomised control trial (RCT) design for the disinvestment of services and a helix counterbalanced RCT for the simultaneous evaluation of multiple research implementation strategies across different contexts. He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) from the University of Sydney and a PhD from Monash University. His research has had direct impact on clinical practice and health outcomes, such as reduced hospital length of stay from hospital weekend allied health service models, and improved clinician knowledge in the prevention of inpatient falls and management of deep vein thrombosis. The impact of his research is also demonstrated through healthcare policy changes, where he is leading the implementation of evidence-based policy recommendations around weekend allied health services through the Evidence Translation in Allied Health (EviTAH) group in a large international study across 70 hospitals.
