Rev Timothy Hodgson wins the Sir Edward Weary Dunlop Award

Congratulations to Rev Timothy Hodgson, a Studies in Religion PhD candidate, who was honoured on the 5th of October with the Sir Edward Weary Dunlop Award by the Australian Military Medical Association (AMMA) for original research into moral injury and veterans’ health.  The AMMA President (Group Captain Geoffrey Robinson, NSC, [Rtd]), conferred their association's highest award on behalf of the AMMA Scientific Committee to both Timothy and his Associate PhD Supervisor, Dr Lindsay Carey (Palliative Care Unit, La Trobe University, Melbourne). The award is in recognition of their combined expertise in developing, conducting and presenting original and exploratory research into moral injury that will lay a foundation for future research and better pastoral care of Australian military veterans. Their collaborative research has also been presented at the Royal Australian Air Force Chaplains' Conference (2018) and the Australasian Conference on Traumatic Stress (ACOTS, 2019).  Timothy and Lindsay have been assured a publication in the AMMA Journal of Military and Veteran Health for 2020.  They have already co-written several articles relating to moral injury research, one of which (according to journal analytics) is now the most internationally viewed article on moral injury for this decade. Timothy is supervised by Associate Professor Neil Pembroke, Dr David Pittman and Dr Lindsay Carey.
