Oliver selected for Endeavour fellowship from Australian government
Building off his work in global health, Oliver was awarded a prestigious Endeavour Executive Fellowship from the Australian Department of Education and Training. The Endeavour award will allow him to study how the US and Australia treat health information—its uses, storage, and privacy protection— as well as Australia’s efforts to implement My Health Record, a national electronic medical record.
Oliver was hosted at the Australian Centre for Health Law Research at Queensland University of Technology. ACHLR has expertise in the governance and regulation of health care, including privacy and security of health data, and its research is recognized within Queensland, nationally, and globally.
This will be Oliver’s second time collaborating with ACHLR: during his tenure with the Senate Aging Committee, he spoke at the first International Conference on the End of Life, which was hosted by ACHLR and held in part on the QUT campus.
