Qualifications: PhD, MPH, BSc (Biomedical)

Heike Schütze is a Senior Lecturer at UOW and a conjoint lecturer at UNSW Sydney. Heike’s research interests include health services and translational research, particularly as they relate to health inequities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and other minority populations. Her research has a strong focus on developing, implementing and evaluating health care and educational interventions. Her current research projects include exploring the feasibility, safety and impact of transferring cancer patients with low risk of reoccurrence to continuing care to general practice and alternative models of care for primary care patients who present in the emergency department.

In the teaching and learning space, Heike’s research is currently evaluating two higher education interventions she developed: a for-credit subject to improve the transition to university, and an Academic Integrity Bootcamp for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Her previous research assessed the application of a novel research method as a quality improvement tool to improve the acceptability and quality of care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the primary healthcare setting, Equity Focused Health Impact Assessments, a number of NHMRC-funded randomised control trials on chronic disease prevention, and general practitioner education.
