Doctor Jacqui Richmond

Program Manager, Workforce Development and Health Service Delivery, EC Australia

Background

Jacqui is the Program Manager for the Workforce Development and Health Service Delivery component of the Eliminate Hepatitis C (EC) Australia Partnership. This includes overseeing the planning, implementation and management of key activities aimed at scaling up the coverage of hepatitis C services across Australia, targeting general practitioners, nurse practitioners, nurses and community health workers on a national level.

Jacqui has worked in the viral hepatitis sector for the 20 years in nursing, education, social and health services research, and policy development. The broad focus of her work is building the capacity of the health workforce to test, treat and manage the health care needs of people living with viral hepatitis.

Jacqui has led the development of several pivotal documents including the Australasian Hepatology Association’s (AHA) Consensus-based nursing guidelines for the care of people with liver disease (2019 and 2012), the AHA Consensus-based guidelines for the provision of adherence support for people with hepatitis C taking DAAs (2016) and the AHA Practice Standards for the Hepatology Nurse (2015).

Jacqui is a knowledge broker, connecting individuals from the viral hepatitis sector with professionals working in the primary care, tertiary hospital, jurisdictional and federal bureaucratic and research sectors through the establishment and maintenance of strong collaborative relationships. The strength of this network has allowed her to lead translatable research projects that influence the delivery of clinical care for people with chronic liver disease and leverage funding from a variety of industry and government sources.

Jacqui served on the Australian Ministerial Advisory Committee on Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections (MACBBVS) between 2015 and 2018.

Jacqui is currently a sessional teacher at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Faculty of Health, Deakin University and is an Honorary Research Fellow at the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society, La Trobe University, a Senior Fellow at the Department of Nursing, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, University of Melbourne.
