Assoc Prof Cadilhac's greatest research innovations and achievements as a stroke researcher

High impact stroke research wins Vice-Chancellor’s Award

Assoc Prof Cadilhac
Research improving the prevention and treatment of stroke has earned School of Clinical Sciences’ Associate Professor Dominique Cadilhac a prestigious Vice Chancellor’s Award for Research Impact.

Professor Cadilhac’s research program over the last 17 years has focussed on stroke, the leading cause of adult disability and second leading cause of death in Australia.

Using a range of methodologies including mixed-methods health services research, program evaluation and health economics, Professor Cadilhac has provided evidence to improve outcomes for patients with stroke at an acceptable cost.

“Most recent examples of the impact of my research include the establishment of the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry, the Victorian Stroke Telemedicine  (VST) program and providing, for the first time, the greater opportunity to understand unwarranted clinical variation in acute stroke care and the impact on longer-term patient outcomes including quality of life,” said Professor Cadilhac.

“Using decision-analytic modelling in 2007, I showed that by closing recognised gaps in practice and providing improved access to evidence-based therapy, approximately 27,000 (or 38 per cent) of strokes in 2015 could potentially be prevented.

“I calculated $1.06 billion could be recovered in lifetime cost-offsets through this modelling,” said Professor Cadilhac.

“Professor Cadilhac is the leading health services researcher undertaking this important work in Australia, and this work has led to significant economic and social impact,” said Head of Stroke and Ageing ResearchProfessor Velandai Srikanth

When Professor Cadilhac first began tracking access to stroke unit care in 1999 there were only 35 stroke units in this country.

Based on her evidence and consequent lobbying of government to improve health services for stroke, there are now 92 stroke units in Australia, directly contributing to reductions in death and disability.

“This award provides important ratification of the work I have done over the last 17 years with my exemplary team of researchers and collaborators, and it makes me very proud to receive this recognition from the University,” said Professor Cadilhac.

“My outstanding research and professional academic teams have been the invaluable cogs in a very well-oiled and busy machine, and my success is a reflection of their dedication, enthusiasm and broad interdisciplinary expertise that make our work and contributions so well regarded in the field.” 

Australian-first research saving babies

Professor Euan Wallace and
Dr Miranda Davies-Tuck
A highly successful research project at Monash University’s The Ritchie Centre has contributed to a significant reduction in stillbirth at Monash Health – Victoria’s largest maternity service.

A testament to the project’s impact on healthcare, the Below 100: Preventing Stillbirth program was an award winner for improving healthcare through clinical research in this year’s Victorian Public Healthcare Awards.

Stillbirth is a devastating outcome for women, their partners and families. 
Unfortunately, the rate of stillbirth in Victoria has remained unchanged for more than 20 years. In particular, the rate of late pregnancy stillbirth (losses after 36 weeks) has been most stubborn to change.

The collaborative research project led by The Ritchie Centre’s Professor Euan Wallace and Dr Miranda Davies-Tuck has underpinned Monash Health’s drive to be the safest maternity service in Victoria.

The most robust measure of perinatal mortality rates, including stillbirth, is the Gestation Standardised Perinatal Mortality Ratio (GSPMR), a scale that accounts for gestation at birth and allows comparisons across hospitals. 

By definition, the Victorian state-wide GSPMR is 100, i.e. the average. Any hospital with a GSMPR below 100 has a lower perinatal mortality rate than average for the State, and any hospital above 100 has a higher than average rate.

“When we started this project in 2008, the overall GSMPR for Monash Health maternity hospitals was 115, or 15 per cent higher than State average,” said Professor Wallace, who is also Head, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Monash University and Director of Obstetrics Services at Monash Health.

“However, following the commencement of this research program and the associated changes in clinical care, the GSPMRs have fallen across all three hospitals. The Monash Health average is now 78 – more than 20% better than the State average.”

In order to improve GSPMR rates, Professor Wallace started the Below 100 research program to better understand the causes of stillbirth, with the aim of changing clinical care to address these causes.

“We identified opportunities for improvements in three areas of clinical care: 1) antenatal care; 2) the detection of fetal growth restriction; and 3) late pregnancy fetal surveillance,” said Dr Davies-Tuck.

“Our analysis revealed that women who had received their antenatal care in the community rather than in a hospital clinic had a significantly higher GSPMR.”
“Another part of the project showed that women of South Asian birth were more than twice as likely to have a stillbirth or a growth restricted baby as other women,” added Dr Davies-Tuck.

Growth restriction is associated with a seven-fold increased risk of stillbirth.
“Our data has informed targeted changes in our clinical practice, including establishing a new pregnancy clinic at Dandenong Hospital.”

The new Dandenong clinic has seen a dramatic increase in the number of women receiving antenatal care by Monash Health from 25% in 2013 to 80% in 2015.

“We have also developed new clinical practice guidelines to improve the detection of fetal growth restriction and to commence post-term surveillance in South Asian women at 39 weeks gestation instead of 41 weeks,” said Professor Wallace.

“Our initiatives have led to significant decreases in the GSPMR at all three maternity hospitals, equivalent to about five fewer stillbirths per year at Monash Health.”

If replicated across the state, this would equate to nearly 50 fewer stillbirths in Victoria each year.

Professor Wallace said that recognising the importance of maternal ethnicity in the risk of stillbirth and using this to better target individualise care is an Australian first.

“Every bit as exciting, our research has led to advances in fundamental placental biology that promise predictive testing and preventative therapies into the future.”

Largest ever study of alcohol harm in EDs reveals huge toll

Clinical Assoc Prof
Diana Egerton-Warburton
One in twelve presentations to hospital emergency departments (EDs) are alcohol-related, according to latest research conducted by Monash University and the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM).

In the largest study of its kind ever undertaken, eight emergency departments across Australia and New Zealand were monitored over one week in December 2014.

The study found that one in twelve or 8.3% of all presentations were alcohol-related.

“That equates to more than half a million alcohol-related patients attending EDs every year across Australia and New Zealand,” said lead study author Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor Diana Egerton-Warburton at Monash University.
“Our study confirms that alcohol is having a huge impact on our emergency departments.”

Over 9,600 patients were screened as part of the study, which also found that alcohol-affected patients were more likely to require urgent resuscitation and arrive by ambulance and with police.

One drunk person can disrupt an entire ED,” said Professor Egerton-Warburton, who is also Chair of ACEM’s Public Health Committee.

“They are often violent and aggressive, make staff feel unsafe and negatively impact on the care of other patients.”

“The sheer volume of alcohol-affected patients means they disrupt EDs more than patients affected by ICE.”

ACEM is calling on Australian and New Zealand Governments to introduce firmer measures to limit the availability of alcohol.

The measures included in the NSW ‘Lockout’ laws particularly early closure have demonstrated beyond doubt that when you reduce availability, you reduce harm,”  Professor Warburton said.

Other jurisdictions should follow NSW and now Queensland in introducing early closing times and reducing the availability of alcohol. Policy makers have the power to reduce the tide of human tragedy from alcohol harm.”

ARC funding success enables research into school non-attendance

Dr Glenn Melvin
Congratulations to Dr Glenn MelvinCentre for Developmental Psychiatry and Psychology (CDPP) on recently being awarded a prestigious ARC Discovery Project grant.

Dr Melvin together with CDPP's Associate Professor Kylie Gray and EmeritusProfessor Bruce Tonge, and international colleagues, ProfessorRichard Hastings and Dr Vaso Totsika from the University of Warwick, and Associate Professor David Heyne from Leiden University, will use the grant to develop a better understanding of school non-attendance among children and adolescents with an intellectual disability.

"As we have little understanding of this problem, we are poorly equipped to respond to the support needs of these already marginalised young people," said Dr Melvin. 

"The project will identify specific risk factors associated with school non-attendance."

Findings from this project will inform the development of effective supports and interventions to improve educational experiences and outcomes of young people with an intellectual disability.

Looking for a Sunday drive in the country? Want to escape 2016 grant writing?

The (very) small community of Mollongghip (Happy Valley) is holding an Open Garden to raise funds for the restoration and maintenance of the local community hall. 5 gardens will be open from 10-4 on Sunday 29 November at the reasonable cost of $20 for all 5. There will be refreshments available at the hall where tickets can be purchased. Mollongghip is just over an hour away up the Western Highway towards Ballarat. 

So take a break from thinking about your 2016 NHMRC grants and come for a drive. Professor Rosemary Horne will supply champagne!!

Women get a much needed boost in research funding gender equity plan

Women make up 44% of Australian academics, but just 24% of professors. One of the contributing factors for this disparity is that there are fewer women applying for research grants than men, even though women are just as successful at winning grants as men.

Children/teenagers required for sleep research study

The Ritchie Centre (TRC) is looking for children/teens between the ages of 3 and 18 years to participate as controls in research sleep studies.
The Centre is carrying out studies on the effect of sleep disordered breathing on blood flow to the brain and its relationship with learning and behaviour. We are looking for non snoring 3–12 year old volunteers to serve as controls. Participants will have an overnight sleep study at the Melbourne Children’s Sleep Centre in the Monash Medical Centre.
We are also looking for 8–18 year old non snoring, normal-weight volunteers to serve as controls in another study on the effects of being overweight in childhood and snoring during sleep on brain structure, academic performance and the cardiovascular system. The participants will firstly have an MRI scan at the brand new Monash BioImaging Facility located in Wellington Road opposite Monash University Clayton Campus. This will take about an hour and afterwards have an overnight sleep study at the Melbourne Children’s Sleep Centre in the Monash Medical Centre. Both of these procedures will be performed on the same night.
During the sleep study, leads will be attached to measure brain activity, breathing and heart rate whilst the participants sleep. None of these measurements hurt the participants in any way and they will be able to see what their brains are doing! Sleep studies are overnight from 7:00pm and there are facilities for making tea and coffee and watching DVDs. A parent is required to stay and sleep overnight, and staff and students will explain everything about sleep to you. After the study a friendly psychologist will arrange a time to visit your house for some fun psychological testing. Being poor researchers, the only thing that can be offered in return for participation is free parking and gratitude.
For further information please contact: Professor Rosemary Horne, The Ritchie Centre Phone: 9594 5100  Email: rosemary.horne@monash.edu 
or visit www.monashchildrenshospital.org, in the parents tab through the Melbourne Childrens Sleep Centre page for more information. You can also find us at www.facebook.com/pages/Paediatric-Sleep-Research

(This study has approval from the Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee – Project Number 14024B/12276B)


The Ritchie Centre is carrying out studies to determine the long-term effects of preterm birth and fetal growth restriction on cardiovascular control and function in children aged between 8 and 12 years. We are looking for volunteers of children who were born preterm (between 25 and 34 weeks gestation) with an appropriate birth weight for their gestational age. The participants will firstly have an ultrasound of their heart at Monash Heart, which will take about 30 minutes and then an overnight sleep study at the Melbourne Children’s Sleep Centre, located at Monash Medical Centre. Both of these procedures will be performed on the same night. During the sleep study, we will attach leads to measure brain activity, breathing, heart rate and blood pressure whilst the participants sleep overnight. These measures are all non-invasive and will not hurt the participants in any way. Sleep studies are overnight from 7:00pm and there are facilities for making tea and coffee and watching DVDs. A parent is required to stay and sleep overnight, and our staff and students will explain everything about sleep to you. Being poor researchers we can only offer free parking and our gratitude for participation!
