Career Summary

Biography

"Every system is perfectly designed to create the outcomes it produces" - systems thinking & data science: a powerful precursor for effective process management & performance improvement.

Expertise

Professor Peter Howley is a national and international leader and award winning academic and practitioner in statistics, systems and process improvement, quality control, data analytics, education & STEM.

Professor Howley's primary research focuses on statistical process control, systems evaluation and improvement, and statistical modeling, design and assessment in public health and clinical settings to foster advancement of health care and clinical management locally, nationally and internationally. This has included informing policy and improvement through holistic strategies for integrating national clinical indicator and healthcare accreditation systems, improved methods for analysing, reporting, monitoring and utilising clinical indicator data, and assessment and design of new health care and clinical practices.

With a focus on systems thinking, data science and performance improvement, Dr Howley's research addresses performance measurement and systems improvement, through the lens of statistics, which also extends beyond the health care field, with publications, grants, consulting and invited speaker and presenter roles spanning the fields of healthcare, education, business, management, industry, equity and STEM.

Peter collaborates across health, government, education and industry sectors to improve systems and outcomes. Examples include: Taipei Medical University/Taiwan Health (Health, Systems Improvement & QMS), Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (systems improvement - national reporting on clinical indicators), Hunter Medical Research Institute/HNE Health (Type 1 Diabetes Clinical trials, Nutrition & Dietetics, Paediatrics), STEM Industry Schools Partnership, AMPControl (Quality Control), Health Services Research Group, NESA/ACARA (Education - curriculum: expert advisor), Government/Higher Education collaborative grants (Equity, Indigenous engagement), STEM Education and Outreach for schools and the broader community.

He has assumed local, national and international advisory and executive board appointments, as well as director and community- and industry-engaged leadership roles.

Peter has led national community engagement initiatives as well as workforce development courses and workshops surrounding process and quality improvement, statistics and STEM.

Peter is an expert advisor to national and international organisations and leader of practical multidisciplinary collaborative initiatives and research teams across health, education, industry and equity.

Vice-President (Hunter Innovation and Science Hub), National Chair (Statistical Education - Statistical Society of Australia (SSA)) & elected member of International Statistical Institute (ISI), Peter has created & delivered courses in Data Science, Analytics, Process Control, Systems Thinking, Integrated STEM, to a broad array of audiences supporting systems & performance improvement.

Peter was appointed the inaugural UON STEMM Ambassador (2019-20), Assistant Dean (Outreach & Engagement) Faculty of Science (2017-20), inaugural Science & Technology Australia STEM Ambassador (2018), Director of national engagement programs for community & schools, & Professor of Statistics.

Background: Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is associated with increased risk of eating disorders. This study aimed to (1) assess adherence of Australasian paediatric T1D clinics to international guidelines on screening for disordered eating and (2) identify barriers and enablers to the use of screening tools for the identification of disordered eating. Methods: A 24-item survey covering five content domains: clinic characteristics, identification of disordered eating, screening tool use, training and competence, and pathways for referral, was sent to Australasian clinics caring for =150 children and adolescents with T1D. Results: Of 13 eligible clinics, 10 participated. Two reported rates of disordered eating of >20%, while eight reported rates < 5%. All clinics used the routine clinical interview as the primary method of screening for disordered eating. Only one used screening tools; these were not diabetes-specific or routinely used. Barriers to use of screening tools included shortage of time and lack of staff confidence around use (n = 7, 70%). Enablers included staff training in disordered eating. Conclusions: Screening tools for disordered eating are not utilised by most Australasian paediatric T1D clinics. Overall, low reported rates of disordered eating suggest that it may be undetected, potentially missing an opportunity for early intervention.
