Churchill Fellowship for PHRN

Thursday, July 7, 2011

The PHRN is proud to announce that Manager, Client and Policy Services (Program Office) Dr Felicity Flack has today been announced as a recipient of a prestigious 2011 Churchill Fellowship.

As a result of this award Dr Flack will now visit a number of data linkage units and groups in the United Kingdom and Canada in September this year.

Dr Flack is one of 12 West Australians (from a field of 101 applications) and 107 Australians (from over 1000 applicants) to be awarded a 2011 Churchill Fellowship by the Churchill Trust.

Churchill Fellowships allow recipients to design research projects, travel the world and further their knowledge in a chosen field, before returning to make a real contribution to Australian society.

A particular focus of Dr Flack's Churchill Fellowship will be looking in depth at the governance processes in the various data linkage models with the aim of determining which models are best designed to maximise public benefit whilst minimising any risk to individual privacy.
