Joseph is a Professor at two of Australia’s leading universities and a practising senior specialist in geriatric medicine with over 30-years of clinical experience in the health and well-being of older people.


Joseph has a Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, a Doctorate of Philosophy in Epidemiology and Health Services Research (Monash University), Fellowship of the Australian Faculty of Public Health Medicine and a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education.


Joseph was an inaugural and founding member of the clinical team assisting the State Coroner’s Office in the 2000’s investigating the system failures associated with health and aged care deaths respectively. Joseph’s ongoing research is investigating approaches to reducing harm to older persons and improving quality of life. Joseph has also been called as an expert witness for criminal cases into elder abuse and coroners cases into the quality of care provided to nursing home residents, including the inquest into Oakden. Joseph has also provided evidence and been cited in the Australian Law Reform Commission into Elder Abuse, Carnell and Paterson Report, the Commonwealth Senate Inquiry for protecting residents from abuse and poor practices, the House of Representatives Inquiry and more recently the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.


Professor Ibrahim is the lead author of the influential report “Recommendations for prevention of injury-related deaths in residential aged care services.” This work has informed approaches for protecting residents from abuse and poor practices and ensuring proper clinical and medical care standards are maintained and practiced. This report followed the first comprehensive national study of injury-related deaths among nursing home residents in the world considered one of the Top 10 influential research studies in 2017 published in the Medical Journal of Australia. Joseph was one of three people recognized by the Sydney Morning Herald Good Weekend's “People Who Mattered 2019: Health”.


Joseph is also a producer, co-writer and narrator of four short films about ethical issues in persons with dementia and ageing including Dignity of Risk(2017),  Not for resuscitation and dementia (2015),  Driving and dementia (2013).  The film Dignity of Risk was won multiple awards including ‘Best Narrative Film’ at Global Impact Film Festival (Washington DC Aug 2017) and was the official selection with laurels for five other international festivals including the Awareness Festival (Los Angeles Oct 2017), Atlantic City Festival (New Jersey Oct 2017), United Nations Association Film Festival (San Francisco Oct 2017), American Association Public Health (Atlanta Nov 2017).
