Honorary Life Membership of the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association is precious,

awarded rarely and in recognition of a significant, long-term contribution to the Association

as well as to healthcare in Australia. 

"This year, the AHHA Board had great pleasure in awarding the Association’s 10th Honorary

Life Membership to Professor Kathy Eagar," Prue Power, AHHA Executive Director, said


"Kathy has given over twenty five years to the health and community sectors dividing her

time equally between being a clinician, a senior manager and a health academic. She is

currently Director of the Centre for Health Service Development where she leads a team of

40 researchers covering 18 disciplines. Her team has a national reputation reflecting a track

record of policy-relevant health services research and development focusing on the

translation of research findings into policy and practice. 

"In this role, Kathy fosters and encourages a wide range of research topics, including health

service delivery, organisational performance, care coordination and integration, health

outcomes, health policy and management and health and community care financing.

"In addition, Kathy manages the Australasian Rehabilitation Outcomes Centre (AROC), the

Palliative Care Outcomes Collaboration (PCOC) and the National Casemix and Classification

Centre (NCCC). Kathy has also authored over 250 articles, papers and reports on

management, quality, outcomes, information systems and funding of the Australia and New

Zealand health and community care systems.

"The AHHA appreciates Kathy’s expertise and contributions to our policy development and is

proud to award her with Honorary Life membership,” Ms Power said.
