In her previous role at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre, she developed training tools for health professionals to improve response to family violence in the community, including ‘When She Talks to You about the Violence: A Toolkit for Health Practitioners in Victoria’ (2014). She also contributed to policy reform to improve the safety of women with severe mental illness, and developed sex-specific algorithms to assist clinical decision-making with the goal of balancing effective psychiatric treatment while minimising the endocrine adverse effects of antipsychotic drugs.
