Professor Jed Duff

Prof Jed Duff is Chair of Nursing at Royal Brisbane and Woman’s Hospital where he develops, tests, and implements strategies to improve the uptake of evidence into practice; designs and runs multidisciplinary practice-based research; and mentors staff in evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and research. Jed describes himself as a ‘pracademic’ – someone who helps solve real-world problems by combining the views of practitioners and academics.

The focus of Jed’s research is improving patient outcomes through multidisciplinary practice-based research with a particular emphasis on implementation science. He is skilled at both implementing evidence using pragmatic models and studying the implementation using mixed-method approaches. From 2014-2016, Jed was an NHMRC Translating Research into Practice Fellow, and in 2019 he received a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to conduct implementation research in the USA.
