Dr Dana Kai Bradford has a BSc (neuroscience and psychology) with Honours (neuroscience) from the University of Queensland and a PhD (neuroscience) awarded by the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI). She is a senior research scientist with the Australian eHealth Research Centre in CSIRO, and an adjunct senior research fellow with QBI. She predominantly leads projects aimed at developing digital services for equitable health care in culturally and neurologically diverse populations as well as general populations, particularly in the domains of chronic health, mental health, genomics and aged care.
Bradford has been involved in award winning projects including ‘CALD Assist’, an app designed to translate key hospital phrases to facilitate communication between non-English speaking patients and their clinicians and nurses; and Australia’s first ‘Smarter Safer Home’ to extend independent living for the elderly. Dana will be presenting a particularly poignant case study from this latter project.
