Career Summary

Biography

I was awarded my PhD in 2004. My doctoral research was in the area of public health nutrition and explored the reasons women gain weight at mid-life, as a sub-study of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health (ALSWH). I worked full time as an academic while writing my thesis, and thus focused on this as my main publication in the period 2001-2003. Since then I have re-focused my efforts towards C1 publications. I have achieved publication in high impact journal. My work on the strategies women choose to control their weight (Williams, Germov & Young, 2007) appeared in the International Journal of Obesity (IF: 4.482). I have presented the results of my research at conferences both within Australia and internationally. I commenced supervising RHD candidates soon after completing my own PhD, and I have supervised 2 students to completion and am currently supervising 6 students on a variety of topics.

Research Expertise
I have expertise in both qualitative and quantitative research methods. My published work is in public health, and in the social sciences as well as the behavioural sciences. My PhD work has been presented and published internationally.

Teaching Expertise
Dr Williams works full time as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Health Sciences, in the Faculty of Health. As a Senior Lecturer, her role comprises teaching, research and service (governance and community). My key teaching is in the area of community and public health nutrition to students enrolled in nutrition and dietetics, and I co-ordinate that entire degree program. I have previously provided nutrition education to students in other professional groups (medicine, consumer science, primary and secondary education, early childhood). I have had two RHD completions. The theses are entitled: 'The Role of Cow's Milk Protein in Children with Chronic Functional Constipation' and 'Exploring the Barriers to Introduction of a Best Practice Nutrition and Dietetics Model in Rural Areas'. I am currently supervising 6 research higher degree students and 3 honours students.

Administrative Expertise
Experienced at chairing committees, and have been Vice president of the Dietitians Association of Australia. I am the Program Convenor for the Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics, and am the elected representative of the School of Health Sciences on Faculty Board (Health). I have managed collaborative projects in conjunction with external agencies, (eg I am currently implementing a program for Veterans in the Hunter and Central Coast Areas in conjunction with the Department of Veterans Affairs (funding agency), and NSW Health under a memorandum of understanding).

Collaborations
I have several research collaborations. My interdisciplinary collaboration has been with my sociologist colleague, A/Prof John Germov, from the School of Humanities and Social Science. I have contributed to, and helped foster, the relatively new research area of the sociology of food and nutrition. Food and nutrition have traditionally been examined from a biomedical perspective, but by collaborating, we have strengthened the sociocultural exploration of food and nutrition. Over the past decade we have published on the social determinants of food habits (Williams & Germov 2005; Germov & Williams 2004a), gendered eating and dieting (Williams & Germov 2004b, 2004c; Germov & Williams 1999, 1996a, 1996b), weight control (Williams, Germov & Young, in press, accepted December 2006), social determinants of obesity (Germov & Williams 2005). Lauren co-edited all 3 editions of the academic reader and text, A Sociology of Food and Nutrition: The Social Appetite (3rd edn, Oxford University Press, 2008), and has also co-authored several chapters within the book. I am an Associate Investigator with the Research Centre for Gender, Health and Ageing, which is a Priority Research Centre of the University of Newcastle.

Aim: The dramatic rise in childhood obesity incidence in developing countries is related to nutrition and lifestyle transition. The aim of this review was to evaluate the quality and reporting of dietary assessment methods used in studies examining the relationship between dietary outcome and childhood obesity in developing Asian countries. Methods: A three-step search strategy was conducted in databases between inception and 2011 with an English language restriction. Inclusion criteria were any cross-sectional or cohort studies in children =18 years who resided in developing countries in Asian region that included reporting on dietary intake. Papers were screened with standardised tools for quality and dietary methodology reporting. Results: The search process identified 2080 studies and 15 studies (in 16 articles) met inclusion criteria. The most commonly used dietary assessment method was dietary questionnaires (n = 10), followed by 24-hour diet recall (n = 4), food frequency questionnaire (n = 3) and an unweighed food record (n = 1). For dietary methodology reporting, 12 out of 16 articles were rated as 'poor', 3 rated as 'acceptable' and 1 as 'excellent'. Conclusions: The quality rating was influenced by the dietary assessment tool chosen, and a quality rating of 'poor' was mostly obtained by studies using non-standardised, non-validated study-specific dietary questionnaires. Significant gaps were identified in dietary intake methodological quality and hence, there is an urgent need for valid dietary measures and reporting of dietary intake among overweight children for studies conducted in Asian region. © 2014 Dietitians Association of Australia.

Rural and remote communities in Australia are typically underserviced by dietitians. The recruitment of dietitians to rural areas has improved in recent years; however, retention remains an issue. Key factors that lead to an increase in funding and the development of more dietetic positions in rural areas are unknown. The purpose of this study was to describe dietetic services in rural areas and to determine the drivers for and barriers to the development of dietetic positions in rural areas. A sequential explanatory mixed methods approach was used to examine six case study sites of dietetic service delivery in rural northern New South Wales (NSW) Australia between 1991 and 2006. The six sites represented different models of dietetic service delivery from the study area. Data sources included workforce documents and in-depth individual interviews on position development with 40 key informants, including past and present dietitians, dietetic managers and health service managers. Interview data were thematically analysed with the aid of NVivo7 (www.qsrinternational.com). Themes were coded into common categories, using a constant comparison inductive approach. Forty key informants agreed to participate in the in-depth, semi-structured interview. Participants included 28 dietitians (past and present), three dietetics managers and nine managers. The majority of participants were female (87.5%). Document analysis showed that the dietetic workforce had a 5.6-fold increase across the six sites over the 15 years. Themes that emerged from the interviews indicated that new positions were established through ad hoc and opportunistic funding, a gradual increase in funding or due to concerted efforts by champions advocating for increased funding. The findings from this study have important implications for the development of dietetic staffing in rural areas. There is an inconsistent approach to the development of dietetic positions in rural areas of Australia. Factors that inhibited the development of positions included a general lack of funds and competing priorities. A systematic, planned approach to the development of dietetic positions is needed in rural Australia. Champions for the development of positions were effective in increasing positions, particularly when they have management support.
