Dr Sandra South, Ph.D, B.Sc. with Honours (Hons)
Dr South has been with Audiology Australia as the Research and Policy Manager since late 2015. Her responsibilities include reviewing and developing policies and procedures to meet the NASRHP membership requirements.
Dr South developed her ability to think critically and distil complex issues during her decade conducting research in five different countries, including three and a half years at the Department of Knowledge-Based Policy and Guidance at the National Board of Health and Welfare in Sweden.
During her career to date, Dr South has contributed to evidence-based policy development that has been implemented across a range of complex and cross-portfolio issues including: child sexual abuse, human trafficking, intimate partner violence, and end-of-life decision-making. This has required her to be confident, responsive, resourceful and adaptable; incorporating the views of clients, families, service providers, government agencies and colleagues.
Dr South looks forward to contributing to the NASRHP Board to ensure that it offers an efficient, impartial and accountable model of self-regulation for allied health professions.
