Associate Professor Dr. Susan Liew (Deputy Chair)

I am an orthopaedic surgeon and work at The Alfred and the Royal Childrens Hospital, both Level 1 trauma centres in Melbourne. One of my main clinical areas is in spine trauma. I’m also a member of the Victorian Trauma committee with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Through these roles I see the personal and societal consequences of road trauma and can see there is so much that needs to be done in all the areas of awareness, education, prevention, and recovery. Most of all, however, I see this through the lens of a mother of four young adults. Please support our work at Pedestrian Council of Australia
