Chris is a Professor of Health Economics in the Centre for Indigenous Health Equity Research, Central Queensland University (CQUniversity).

Research output (2013-17)

Prof Doran’s output as a researcher has been outstanding with evidence of a rising trajectory in terms of policy relevance, leadership, grants, manuscripts and impact. Over the 5-year period 2013-17, he has been an investigator on 39 competitive grants valued at $30.4 million including 15 NHMRC grants. Prof Doran has led world class research in the area of health economics through NHMRC funded (APP 456002, APP630441), and other funded research. He currently leads the health economic component in: 3 centres of research excellence (APP1117198, APP1078579, APP1078927); 4 partnership grants (APP1114511, APP1113693 APP1112983, APP1077036); and, a number of other global, targeted, dementia and project grants. Over the 5-year period 2013-17, he has published 65 peer-reviewed manuscripts (average of 13 per year) and produced 26 policy relevant reports.

Contribution to field of research

Prof Doran’s research has contributed to the field of health economics and strengthened the evidence base for effective policy action. In recent years, his focus on priority setting has been complemented with the development of tools and frameworks to facilitate translational research. His translational research has contributed to the development, implementation and evaluation of national and international substance abuse and mental health policies.

Collaborations

A major strength of Prof Doran’s research is the network of collaborations he has established. Evidenced by his research output, Prof Doran has collaborated extensively with academics, consumer groups, practitioners and policy makers in building capacity in the knowledge, use and translation of health economics. Due to his globally recognised research into the health economics of mental health and substance abuse, he has developed strong links with the World Health Organisation and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, leading to invited presentations, collaborative manuscripts, commissioned research and a sabbatical placement with the World Health Organisation in Geneva. His research projects are multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional with a strong focus on collaboration and capacity building. For example, as CI on APP351558, he worked closely with members of the steering and advisory committees representing 5 universities, state and federal government organisations, non-government organisations, community and Indigenous experts and the World Health Organisation.

International standing

Prof Doran’s current research is well regarded internationally, acknowledged by commissioned research from the World Health Organisation, the United Nations, Mental Health Commissions’, Industry and requests to serve on prestigious journal and grant review committees. His latest research for the United Nations examined the economic cost of addiction in the United Arab Emirates and was published in the Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal. He has recently (February 2018) been invited, by the United Nations, to conduct a similar study in Kuwait.
