Rajna Ogrin is a driver of innovation, with a proven track record of leading projects to improve delivery of services, ensuring that services are based on what older people need. This involves incorporating the best available evidence, to ensure effectiveness so that community members receive care that makes a real difference.

Due to the gap in evidence being implemented in practice in health, Rajna completed a PhD and post-doctoral studies in the area of providing best practice care in people with diabetes and older people with wounds. Her research has naturally evolved into developing services and education resources that have been co-designed with community members in order to improve health outcomes for people with diabetes, vulnerable groups and older people in general, translating evidence into practice.

Her goal is to support delivering evidence-based practice reform in models of care that make measurable change to community members and health professionals’ lives.
