Research expertise

Professor Gibberd is internationally recognised for his work in measuring health processes and outcomes and the use of data to monitor trends in quality over time.

He has served as the Director of the Hunter Health Statistics Unit and Director of the Health Services Research Group (HSRG) at the University of Newcastle. In both roles he has contributed extensively to delivering data reports for States on quality, admission rates, readmission rates and evaluation of health services, as well as supervising health researchers and statistical and programming staff.

Through his key role in developing and designing statistical methodology to assess practice he was one of the principle investigators of the groundbreaking study Quality in Australian Health Care published in the Medical Journal of Australia (MJA) in 1995, establishing a baseline for the incidence of adverse events in health care resulting in many improvements in the Australian health care system.
