Dr Dinat has a successful and busy private practice, where she integrates holistic care using
homoeopathy and allopathic medicine, and is the only specialist OB/GYN who is registered
as a homoeopath in South Africa. She is the founder of the academic palliative care public
sector service at the University of the Witwatersrand. This is now fully integrated into the public
sector (sustainable) with a team of 26 staff doing more than 7000 patient consultations per
year. She conceived, piloted and evaluated this specialist service between 1999 and 2009.
After demonstrating successful outcomes, the Department of Health fully absorbed this
service and designated it a Centre of Excellence.
Her research activities started in clinical epidemiology in the area of HIV and women’s health
in 1998. She ran an observational cohort study, following up 634 women for two years and
maintained a retention rate of 86%. Thereafter, she did work in health services development
and evaluation specifically for palliative care. After identifying research priority areas for
palliative care in Southern Africa, she has since concentrated on clinical research in HIV
neuropathy, completing an investigator led RCT in HIV neuropathy. She has successfully led
multidisciplinary research collaborations, and is currently involved in international
She has an interest in ethics of research, specifically on how trial participants actually realise
their rights, on ethics of funding, and the on research trials with vulnerable groups, including
people who are dying. This has led her to work closely with the local communities. With regard
to clinical research, she is interested in qualitative methodology and applying evidenced based
medicine to the individual.
