If the key to translating knowledge to improve health outcomes is effective engagement with sectors other than health, then who needs to be engaged when and how? In the process, how can we make sure that the decision-making needs of different ethnic, socio-economic or other groups are taken seriously.

Emeritus Professor Judith Lumley was a world-renowned researcher and teacher who spent her career working towards better health outcomes for pregnant women and their children. In 2002, she was awarded the Sidney Sax Public Health Medal, for "more than two decades of work dedicated to the promotion of public health and for her efforts in improving maternal care in Australia.” She passed away in October 2018. The speakers in this session have been invited to reflect on Judith’s legacy and consider how the translation of evidence into practice has improved the health outcomes of women and children in Australia.
