Linda Mundy is the manager of the Health Policy Advisory Committee on Technology (HealthPACT) Secretariat, which is now seated in Queensland within the HTA team in the Clinical Access and Redesign Unit. HealthPACT is the national committee for the horizon scanning of new and emerging health technologies, excluding pharmaceuticals, and as such, provides jurisdictions with timely evidence-based advice on the managed introduction of these technologies. Linda oversees all Horizon Scanning activities: scanning the literature and writing briefs, which can be found on the dedicated HealthPACT web site http://www.health.qld.gov.au/healthpact/. Linda has a strong clinical research background in the fields of obstetrics and gynaecology, physiology and HIV infection.
Linda holds a BSc from the University of Adelaide majoring in immunology, microbiology and biochemistry and recently completed her Masters of Public Health.
