Professor Abdel-Latif Mohamed is a certified and experienced Neonatologist with expertise in Paediatrics, Perinatal, and Neonatal Medicine. I have extensive experience in clinical epidemiology, evidence-based medicine and advanced statistical modeling and meta-analysis.
Working at Centenary hospital for Women and Children, Canberra Hospital, as the senior consultant Neonatologist I have come across many periods when both my formal training in Neonatology and experience were challenged. I believe in taking my work seriously as I understand the implications of having the future of a child at your hands. It gives me great inner satisfaction to know that I have been successful in facing up to most of them especially since my work involves little lives and perinatal health on a large scale from chronic disorders to common childhood health issues. I have a true grasp of all since I believe in research largely.
As a Professor of Neonatology at the Medical School, Australian National University, I'm a teacher, educator, and mentor for our future generation of medical doctors. My background also includes several years of research, supervising and mentoring 76 students and trainees, 3 PhD students and 15 Masters’ students. I have published widely in regional and international medical journals.
My research interests include:
- Perinatal epidemiology including neonatal survival, neonatal abstinence syndrome and neurodevelopmental outcome
- Health service research including quality of care and outcome of neonatal intensive care units,
- Systematic reviews and EBM including non-invasive surfactant delivery methods.
I’m expert in clinical and epidemiological research design, data analysis and advanced statistical modelling. I have published widely in these areas in local, regional and international peer-reviewed journals.
