She has degrees in linguistics and public health and has previously held research and teaching positions at Macquarie University and the University of Sydney. Ongoing research interests include systemic functional linguistics, modelling register and context, health discourse, and the representation and treatment of animals. Across these concerns a unifying theme is the construal of agency and identity. Alison is currently the Vice-President of the Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association and an editorial board member for the Journal of Animal Studies.


Chapter 7 draws out the key findings and briefly outlines their implications for reviewing and planning HIV treatments, for modelling shared decision-making in future research, and for professional development and peer/patient development. Some comments are also made about the usefulness and generalisability of the discourse analytic tools used in the study.
