Career Summary

Biography

Dr Sue Outram is currently the Head of the Discipline of Health Behaviour Sciences in the School of Medicine and Public Health, Faculty of Health and Medicine. She is responsible for managing a large cross disciplinary undergraduate and postgraduate teaching program, 6-8 academic staff, casual lecturing staff and 20 conjoint staff and RHD students (up to 20). Dr Outram's academic contribution has previously been demonstrated in leadership in teaching and administration, and is in the early stages of her research career. Her research outputs should be reviewed relative to opportunity. She has worked part time for most of her university tenure (while bearing and raising 3 children) only returning to work full time in 2003. Having gained her PhD in 2002, she is an early career researcher. Despite this late entry to research, Dr Outram has demonstrated her capacity to initiate a large research project, manage and follow it through to publication via her doctoral research. Since completion of her PhD, Dr Outram has collaborated on a number of research projects within the health behaviour discipline (reduction of alcohol related harm), across disciplines (Indigenous, psychiatry, medical education) and across universities (Sydney and Queensland -Vietnam veterans and partners) in the mental health and behavioural science fields. She has published five papers in peer reviewed journals and published a monograph since 2000 (4 since 2004), presented at many conferences and has papers in refereed conference proceedings before 2000. She is PI (1 & 2) on 4 separate competitive grants 2004-2006 for health and wellbeing of partners of Vietnam Veterans totalling $116,000; AI on the $567,000 Vietnam veterans grant, from which peer reviewed papers are now being prepared (2 conference papers from the study delivered last November); an investigator on a successful 2011 NHMRC grant for an epidemiological study of the health children of Vietnam veterans. This will be the only methodologically rigorous study of a longitudinal family cohort of impact of Vietnam war on Australian service personnel.  A large cross institutional project aimed at enhancing the clinical communication skills of mental health clinicians in regards to serious mental illness is currenlty underway with researchers of Universities of Newcastle and Monash and collaborators in the USA, UK and Qatar. Dr Outram has been a named investigator on 8 different Teaching and Learning grants over the past 4 years, (led 4) on diverse topics including peer observation of teaching, experiences of low SES medical students, increasing capacity of academic staff to teach about social disadvantage and inequity. Dr Outram has been awarded Faculty of Health, UoN Vice-Chancellor’s award and citation and 2 national awards.

Research Expertise
Dr Outram gained her PhD in 2003. Her thesis, titled “An exploration of psychological distress in Australian midlife women.” was a multi-method study analysing a longitudinal cohort of 14,000 Australian women and a detailed substudy of 400 women. Since completion of her PhD, she has collaborated on a number of research projects within the Discipline of Health Behaviour (reduction of alcohol related harm in Aboriginal communities), across disciplines (Indigenous health, psychiatry, medical education) and across universities (Sydney and Queensland – Vietnam veterans, partners and children) in the mental health and behavioural science fields. A focus of her research has been the health and wellbeing of Australian Vietnam veterans, partners and families. This includes working on an NHMRC epidemiological study of Australian Vietnam veterans with researchers from Sydney and Brisbane; PI on 4 separate grants totalling $139,000 (2004-6) including 2 Rotary Mental Health grants for 2006-7 (with above team plus Partners of Veterans Association) and a 2011 NHMRC grant to investigate the health and wellbeing of offspring of Vietnam Veterans. Dr Outram has undertaken collaborative research with vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in the community such as Indigenous, women with mental ill-health, people with schizophrenia and their carers and partners of war veterans suffering from PTSD. The focus of her most recent research is in improving communication skills in mental health services. A body of work has documented the experiences of people diagnosed with schizophrenia, their carers and mental health professionals in order to develop training and education to improve the communication skills of psychiatrists trainees, psychiatric and other mental health professionals.

Teaching Expertise
Dr Outram has initiated, developed and taught innovative curriculum in Departments of Nursing, Allied Health, Education and Medicine in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs in over 20 years in the tertiary sector. This has included multidisciplinary teaching; experiential learning; skills based communication skills; a postgraduate suite of programs in women’s health, midwifery, distance education programs in health promotion, and public health for undergraduates. She has a special interest in teaching about loss and grief, sexuality, culture and health, and health equity. Currently she co-ordinates the Behavioural and Social Sciences input into the Joint Medical program, School of Medicine and Public Health. A major part of this is a 5 year integrated course in clinical consultation skills. Other challenging and rewarding courses that she has initiated and taught are: “Sensitive issues in the primary school curriculum” which aims to prepare student teachers to be able to teach issues such as loss & grief, mental health, sexuality; and a multidisciplinary core course in public health and health promotion for undergraduates in health professions.

Administrative Expertise

Objective: This research sought to gain insight into the processes used by clinicians to discuss a schizophrenia diagnosis with patients/families, with the aim of informing the development of a communications skills training program. Methods: A generic qualitative methodological approach was used. Sixteen mental health clinicians were recruited. Semi-structured individual interviews were used to explore their perceptions and experiences communicating a schizophrenia diagnosis. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and thematic analysis undertaken. Results: There were five key themes relating to the process of communication about a diagnosis of schizophrenia: (1) orientation to patient care, (2) planning of communication, (3) the impact of team leadership and inter/intra-professional functioning on communication tasks, (4) the roles of different clinicians in communicating about diagnosis and treatment, and (5) time and resource deficiencies. Despite expressing care and concern for vulnerable patients and embracing the concept of multidisciplinary teams, communicating diagnostic information to patients and families was generally unplanned for, with little consistency regarding leadership approaches, or how the team communicated diagnostic information to the patient and family. This contributed to tensions between different team members. Conclusion: The findings demonstrated a number of issues compromising good communication around a schizophrenia diagnosis, both in terms of clinician skill and clinical context, and support the importance of education and training for all members of the multidisciplinary team about their role in the communication process.

Lifetime suicidality was assessed in a cohort of 448 ageing Australian Vietnam veterans and 237 female partners during in-person structured psychiatric interviews that permitted direct comparison with age-sex matched Australian population statistics. Relative risks for suicidal ideation, planning and attempts were 7.9, 9.7 and 13.8 times higher for veterans compared with the Australian population and for partners were 6.2, 3.5 and 6.0 times higher. Odds ratios between psychiatric diagnoses and suicidality were computed using multivariate logistic regression, and suicidality severity scores were assigned from ideation, planning and attempt, and analysed using ordinal regression. PTSD, depression alcohol disorders, phobia and agoraphobia were prominent predictors of ideation, attempts and suicidal severity among veterans, while depression, PTSD, social phobia and panic disorder were prominent predictors among partners. For veterans and their partners, PTSD is a risk factor for suicidality even in the presence of other psychiatric disorders, and is stronger in Vietnam veterans than their partners.

Introduction: Cultural diversity among students in tertiary institutions in Australia and globally has increased rapidly in the last decade, and is continuing to do so. Methods: Focus groups were held at the University of Newcastle, NSW to: (1) examine the specifi c needs of international students in the Master of Pharmacy, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Nursing programs in relation to language and cultural considerations and (2) to understand the attitudes of domestic students to the cultural issues faced among their peers. Th e project explored these issues with the intention to inform curricula changes to accommodate the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students. Results: Th e key themes emerging from international students were: diffi culties in spoken language, diff erences in professional roles and expectations, diff erences in methods of learning, inadequate social interaction outside the classroom and acceptance of diff erences in cultural and religious practices. Th e domestic student views reinforced the comments from international students both in regard to social interaction and in regard to participation in class discussions. Although local students were interested in learning from international students about their culture and religious beliefs, there were limited initiatives from both sides. Discussion: Th ere is a need for tertiary institutions that benefi t economically from increasing the numbers of international students to help them to study and live in a new environment. Assistance needs to go beyond learning the English language to helping students understand its use in a professional context (health terminology and slang used by patients), the nuances of the health professional disciplines in a western society, the approach to study and problem-based learning styles and skills to assist with social interaction. Th e results of the present exploration have led to a series of proposed actions for the University of Newcastle. Th ese recommendations are applicable to any 'Western' teaching institution with a large number of international students from developing countries enrolled in their health programs.

Background: Heart disease is a major cause of mortality in women.Women have a poorer prognosis than men after myocardial infarction (MI) and research to date has failed to find a definitive explanation.Women have been identified as late presenters for emergency care after acute myocardial infarction. The aim of this study was to discover the underlying processes that effect women's decisions to seek medical help for symptoms of MI. Methods: Qualitative analysis, of semistructured face-to-face interviews with 16women aged between 48 and 82 years, admitted to a major teaching hospital with MI. Results: The women delayed presentation from 1 h to 168 h (median 6.25 h). The decision to seek help was influenced by beliefs about personal susceptibility to MI and beliefs about the way MI presents. Symptoms were diverse and were rarely as described in current health promotion literature. Conclusion: The pivotal factor for early presentation is that women, and their significant others, recognise the variety of signs and symptoms of MI and their personal susceptibility. A theoretical model, adapted from the Self Regulation Model of Illness Cognition of Leventhal et al. is proposed to explain the women's response and also areas of intervention. © Wiley Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.
