    POPPY II - Combating escalating harms associated with pharmaceutical opioid use

    We are looking for a Biostatistician to work on the POPPY II study, an NHMRC-funded research study that will have significant policy and clinical practice implications for the treatment of pain. This study, led by Prof Louisa Degenhardt, Prof Sallie Pearson and A/Prof Timothy Dobbins, is a retrospective population-based cohort study of approximately 2 million people prescribed opioids in NSW between 2002 and 2018. This world-first study involves a cross-jurisdictional linkage of ten datasets, including data on pharmaceutical claims, health service utilisation (including primary care access, hospitalisations and emergency department presentations) and mortality. Findings will help inform our response to Australia’s rising opioid problem and be of direct relevance to regulatory authorities and agencies responsible for medicines worldwide.
