HiPPP EMR-C Awards: A moment with Lane Carrandi

Michelle Putt Uncategorised

Congratulations to Lane Carrandi, awarded the Best Student Oral Presentation for her presentation: Patterns in the provision of government-subsidised hormonal postpartum contraception in Queensland Australia between 2012 and 2018: A population-based cohort study

  • What does this award mean to you?

Receiving this award in the company of exceptional emerging and mid-career researchers was surreal and inspiring. I look forward to contributing to the field of implementation science alongside my peers and mentors.

  • What is the key takeaway from your presentation?

The conference theme of implementation research was timely. Although the topics and research areas differed across the presentations, the focus on improving the implementation process seemed universal. During my presentation, I really enjoyed linking the downstream outcomes we see in administrative data with upstream factors in the implementation context.

  • What are you working towards next?

I am currently developing a discrete choice experiment to identify factors influencing whether an intervention is implemented. The discrete choice experiment will consider economic factors as well as other contextual factors. I am grateful for all the discussions I had with others at the conference. Their expertise is invaluable to the discrete choice experiment process and the continuation of this work.

  • What did you think of this year’s HiPPP EMR-C conference?

The multidisciplinary environment makes the HiPPP EMR-C conference stand out. It is great to be surrounded by and learn from PhD candidates, early and mid-career researchers, and non-researchers alike. You really get a sense for emerging research in the field from a range of different perspectives.
