2021 ESSA NSW State Symposium Webinar

This year the ESSA NSW State Chapter are presenting their State Symposium in a webinar format. This webinar will bring together a variety of ESSA professionals, which promises to be a great learning day for all. 

Presented by Scott Coleman, B.App.Sc(Physio), B.SptSci & Prof Ian Harris, PhD

Scott Coleman: Scott has become an industry leader in workplace injury prevention through his innovative and comprehensive approach using wearable technology. This approach evolved from the combination of over 20 years of experience working with elite athletes (as a coach, physiotherapist and biomechanist), with the skills developed working in private practice treating injured workers. Over the past five years Scott has been partnering with large organisations, Workers’ Compensation insurance brokers and safety consultants to reduce the costs associated with workplace injury using wearable technology and data analytics. In 2019 his company, Preventure, launched their IoT based workplace injury prevention product, and has since expanded to the USA through support from Silicon Valley investors.

Prof Ian Harris: Ian Harris is a clinician and researcher based in Sydney. His is an orthopaedic surgeon with a clinical interest in trauma care where his practice is based at Liverpool Hospital in southwest Sydney. He is Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the South Western Sydney Clinical School of UNSW Sydney and his research activities are based at the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research in Liverpool and the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Camperdown. His research training include a Master of Clinical Epidemiology and a PhD in surgical outcomes. 

Professor Harris’s research interests are in surgical outcomes, the use of placebos, methods of causal inference, and the appropriateness of medical care. He conducts randomised trials, systematic reviews, observational studies and methods studies. He is involved in several clinical registries, including co-chair of the ANZ Hip Fracture Registry and Deputy Director of the AOA National Joint Replacement Registry. He is currently studying for a Master of Health Data Science (due for completion in December 2021) which will include a dissertation on causal inference using observational data. 

Professor Harris has approximately 300 publications and has received over $32 million in grant funding since 2012. He is a critic of many aspects of modern medical practice and is a campaigner for more science in medicine and in society. He published the book Surgery, the Ultimate Placebo in 2016 and a second book, Hippocrasy: How Doctors Are Betraying Their Oath, in 2021.
