A/Professor Zachary Munn is an advocate for evidence-based healthcare and for ensuring everyone receives the best care possible based on the best available evidence. He is the director of the Transfer Science program of the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), and the JBI Adelaide GRADE Centre and a systematic review and guideline development methodologist.
A/Prof Zachary Munn is the Chair of the Guidelines International Network (GIN) Australia and New Zealand regional steering group and an active member of the GIN Tech group. He is a GIN Board Trustee and current Vice-Chair, chair of the GIN COVID-19 Taskforce, a Cochrane author, a member of the GRADE working group and project groups, and a member of the Living Systematic Reviews network. He is a current member of the NHMRC Synthesis and Translation of Research Evidence (SToRE) Advisory Group.
Although A/Prof Munn is involved in many systematic reviews and guideline projects, perhaps the most rewarding part of his role is the chance to work hands on with clinicians and health services to facilitate the implementation of evidence into practice, particularly in low resource and LMIC settings.
