Jeff is the Senior Staff Specialist Endocrinologist and Director, Diabetes Centre Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital.
His main area of clinical research interest is Information Technology applications in Medicine, especially Data sets and Quality Audit initiatives involving Diabetes Data collection, analysis and reporting. He developed [with Professor Stephen Colagiuri] the Australian National Diabetes Information Audit and Benchmarking initiative, [ANDIAB], that collated diabetes data from Specialist Diabetes Services in Australia and benchmarks results for participants to review their process and outcomes data with peers. ANDIAB ran as a Pilot in 1998, thence in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2011. ANDIAB2 (a more ‘education and patient self-care focussed’ initiative than the ‘medically focussed’ ANDIAB), ran as a Pilot in 2005, thence in 2010 and 2012.
Jeff Chaired the National Diabetes Data Working Group [NDDWG] until 2012, the Advisory Committee to the National Centre for Monitoring Diabetes (Incorporating the National Diabetes Register) at the AIHW, and is a former President of the Australian Diabetes Society (2004-2006).
