Personal profile


Dr Julia K. Moore [MBBS (Hons), FRANZCP, Cert Child Adol Psychiatry] is the Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist for the Gender Diversity Service (GDS), Perth Children’s Hospital, since its commencement in 2015.  Julie is a graduate of the University of Western Australia, and trained in the Western Australian training program of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, after previous experience in hospital medicine, anaesthesia and occupational health. She is a member of the Australian Professional Association for Transgender Health and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, and contributed to the development of the Australian Standards of Care and Treatment Guidelines for Trans and Gender Diverse Children and Adolescents (Telfer M and colleagues, 2018). She provides professional development education for clinicians, and supervises students and trainees in clinical placements in gender health care. She advocates for supporting trans and gender diverse youth at school and in health care, and maintains positive and constructive relationships with organisations supporting the trans community. She has ensured that clinical research has been embedded in the everyday practice of the GDS since its commencement, and together with PCH colleagues and the Telethon Kids Institute team has developed the GENTLE (Gender Identity Longitudinal Experience) research project, a continuously recruited longitudinal cohort of gender diverse young people in Western Australia aiming to report on the health and quality of life of young people attending the GDS, and follow them in to adulthood.  She has co-authored reviews of puberty suppression, hormone treatment and surgical treatment in trans health care, as well as a study of autism spectrum disorder and mental health symptoms in gender diverse youth.  She has also published as lead author about clinical skills and approaches for this population.   In addition to her work with the GDS, Julie also practices as a general and consultation-liaison child and adolescent psychiatrist at PCH, seeing children, adolescents and families presenting with all kinds of problems. Her other professional interests include the treatment of depression in adolescence, mental health in young people who have autism, family therapy, infant mental health and breastfeeding support.  Julie coordinates medical student placements and teaches child and adolescent psychiatry for the University of Western Australia.
