She has overseen several large-scale research projects, and is currently leading a clinical trial with Professor Frances Kay-Lambkin, an NHMRC Partnership Project with Beyond Blue to test an innovative Integrated Translation Model (ITEM) Milena designed to promote uptake of digital psychological treatments for mental health and comorbid alcohol/substance use disorders. Milena has extensive knowledge of qualitative methodology and an interest in combining qualitative and quantitative methods in health research to facilitate a more holistic and encompassing approach to examining health and wellbeing. 

Collaborations

Milena has an established national and international profile as a translation and implementation scientist in social work and public health and was previously a Visiting Research Fellow of Research and Knowledge Exchange at the University of Sussex (2018). Her research projects have involved partnerships with leading industry and government partners Beyond Blue, NSW Ministry of Health, NSW State Emergency Services, Smiling Mind, NIB Foundation, Mark Hughes Foundation, CF Australia and Uniting (NSW, ACT).

© 2019, The Australian Association for Research in Education, Inc. The Creating Meaningful Connections project is a longitudinal study that resulted from a partnership between social work academics at the University of Newcastle and educators at a regional secondary school in NSW, Australia. It seeks to better understand the relationship between school connectedness and youth mental health. In stage 1, focus groups were conducted with 99 students 9¿months after their transition to secondary school. The shift to secondary school created a range of social and academic challenges for young people. It often resulted in limited¿or no¿contact with friends from primary school, requiring the negotiation of new friendships. While this process was relatively trouble-free for many students, others described it as risky and challenging. Positive peer relationships appeared to increase happiness, feelings of safety, offer support during difficult periods and facilitate secondary school adjustment. This paper offers a unique perspective by capturing student voice and commentary about the nature and importance of peer relationships during transition. It also highlights the potential for social work and education to work collaboratively to enhance peer relationships, mental health and school connectedness during transition.

© 2019, © 2019 Taylor & Francis. FGID is one of the most common pain conditions in children and adversely affects their functioning and quality of life. Recent approaches to the management of paediatric FGID recognise the importance of an integrated biopsychosocial approach. Unfortunately, research findings show that psychosocial factors are often not adequately addressed in the management of FGID in children. We recently conducted a survey of 327 paediatric doctors in Australia to investigate their approaches to managing two of the most common childhood FGID¿functional abdominal pain (FAP) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Findings provide important insights into paediatricians¿ perceptions of the role of psychosocial issues and interventions in these conditions. Implications for social work are discussed.

© 2018 The Author(s) 2018. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of The British Association of Social Workers. All rights reserved. In contemporary societies, the value and importance of knowledge is increasingly tied to its potential to generate profit. This raises questions about whether and how knowledge can, at the same time, be harnessed and valued for its capacity to advance social justice. In this paper, we consider these questions in relation to social work knowledge and academic research utilisation, setting our analysis in the context of broader debates on these themes. As well as highlighting the risks that the 'knowledge economy' poses to certain currents of knowledge (currents within social work and analogous currents in other fields), we ask what might be done to protect and realise the value of these currents. We suggest that the example of social work usefully illuminates both the potential and challenges of knowledge utilisation for social justice more broadly.

© The Author 2014. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of The British Association of Social Workers. All rights reserved. In contemporary knowledge societies, scientific research has been emphasised as a key component of effective and accountable service provision. This paper examines commonalities and distinctions between two discourses of research utilisation: 'evidence-based practice' (EBP) and 'knowledge production/utilisation' (KPU) - the former more prominent in informing the social work canon, the latter with some potential to do so. Specifically, it considers how and where these discourses are now coming together, through a focus on 'knowledge mobilisation', 'implementation' and 'innovation', and a shared emphasis on the role of organisations in bridging the gap between research and action. It hopes to contribute to the movement towards greater research use in social work and enhance understanding of the mechanisms by which research is connected to action.
