Bio

B. Physio (Hons), PhD

Dr Louise Wiles graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours 1) from the University of South Australia in 2000, after which she worked as a physiotherapist for over 10 years in both the public and private healthcare sectors. Most of her clinical experience was as a Senior and Principal Physiotherapist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Louise taught for several years within the undergraduate physiotherapy program at the University of South Australia and is an assessor for the Australian Physiotherapy Council. In 2013, Louise completed her PhD at the University of South Australia which used bibliometric and interview methods to investigate the evidence-base underpinning research published in a range of nursing and allied health professional journals in Australia. Continuing her work around safety and quality in healthcare, and evidence-based practice, Louise worked as the Technical Manager for the recently concluded “CareTrack Kids” research project, and is currently a Project Manager/Research Fellow on the “Creating safe, effective systems of care: The translational challenge” and “CareTrack Aged” projects. External to the AIHI’s activities, Louise is co-authoring an update of a Cochrane priority review on consumer engagement strategies.
