National Heart Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship- Dr Jaimon Kelly

Dr Jaimon Kelly was recently awarded a prestigious National Heart Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for over 50% of deaths per year in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD). While digital health technologies and models of care have been touted as a solution to prevent cardiovascular disease, evidence shows that 9 in 10 Australians do not trust them. This funding will support Dr Jaimon’s program of research which aims to improve digital health trust and confidence to prevent cardiovascular disease in people living with chronic kidney disease. This project will be working closely with people living with chronic kidney disease and clinicians working with these populations, to both quantify and qualify the constructs of digital health trust and confidence in cardiovascular prevention strategies through digital health; and codesign solutions to improve digital health trust and confidence in cardiovascular prevention strategies through digital health. The key outcomes of this fellowship can transform cardiovascular prevention through greater adoption and access to digital health care for people living with chronic kidney disease.
