Dr Megan Campbell is Operations Director at AusHSI, the Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation, based at the Queensland University of Technology. AusHSI undertakes a broad range of activities to support research for the development of health services, obtaining competitive, Government-funded research grants and supporting large-scale, collaborative projects with health services.

AusHSI brings together health economists, statisticians, clinicians, health service and implementation researchers to oversee the translation of research ideas into practice, driving greater efficiencies and improved patient outcomes. The research program areas encompass Trauma, Respiratory, Cardiac, Community Health, Infectious Diseases, Digital Health and Hospital Services. 

Megan came to AusHSI at its inception in 2011 from a career in health and medical research that included roles with Queensland Health Scientific Services, and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. She has significant experience in complex, large-scale research program development and management, research governance, risk management and stakeholder engagement.

At AusHSI, Megan leads the strategic development of health services research opportunities, as well as facilitating and supporting interdisciplinary collaborations and partnerships. She leads all aspects of the day-to-day running of AusHSI, including the centre’s communication, engagement, funding and implementation activities.

Megan heads up a diverse multidisciplinary team of over 40 researchers and PhD students. Her team provides practical insights and independent guidance on how to identify, implement and evaluate innovation for real‑life health practice problems.

As AusHSI enters its second decade, Megan is excited to help the organisation build on its strong foundations, extend its partnerships and grow the capacity of health service organisations to improve health outcomes, based on latest research.
