PCHSS researchers recognised in Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2021

Professor Paul Glasziou and Professor Helena Teede


The PCHSS are delighted to announce that two of our researchers, Professor Paul Glasziou AO, and Professor Helena Teede AM, have been recognised in the 2021 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Professor Glasziou, who leads Research Stream 2.1: Impact of Different Sources of Healthcare Waste, was awarded Officer of the Order of Australia for distinguished service to medical education and standards, and to evidence-based medical research. He has published extensive, ground-breaking research on overdiagnosis – the diagnosis of a disease that will never cause symptoms or death during a patient’s life – and waste in healthcare. Professor Glasziou and his team have developed new methods to determine cancer overdiagnosis, finding that in Australia over 40% of prostate cancers are over-diagnosed.

Professor Teede was awarded Member of the Order of Australia for significant service to medical education and research, to endocrinology, and to women’s health. Professor Teede is Director of the Monash Centre for Health Research Implementation and is a PCHSS system lead investigator. She has published extensively on women’s health, metabolic health, and healthcare improvement. Professor Teede has been instrumental in the development of Monash Partner’s Learning Health System initiative.
