Ivan Chan

Ivan has been working at Diabetes Victoria for the past 12 years, as well as at EACH, an urban community health service in Melbourne’s outer east as a community dietitian for the past 18 years. He relishes working collaboratively with other health professionals to deliver holistic care, and with people from all walks of life who live with diabetes and juggle different, and often complex needs.

Ivan especially loves to work with people who use insulin or diabetes medications. While there is a definite place for lifestyle intervention, he recognises that there is also a place where medications come in, and how various diabetes medications can best complement and support the lifestyle of the person living with diabetes.

As a DAFNE-trained Accredited Practising Dietitian who runs carbohydrate counting workshops for adults with type 1 diabetes as well as provides various training for health professionals, Ivan is also interested in making technology more accessible for all people living with diabetes.

She is an epidemiologist who has been actively involved in developing and conducting numerous population health studies. To date she has co-authored over 240 peer-reviewed papers, several of which have been in high-ranking medical and health journals (with over 5800 citations to her name). Her publications have attracted >400 media stories with an estimated audience of 210 million people worldwide. Using large population datasets Bamini has provided novel community-based evidence on the health determinants and health outcomes associated with a sensory loss and disability.

Through the lens of public health, Bamini’s program of research aims to: a) improve support for people with hearing loss; b) ensure early intervention; c) improve engagement with hearing services and aural rehabilitation; and d) prevent the development of hearing loss and minimise its progression.
