Overview

Jane joined the Primary Care Research Group as a Senior Lecturer (Education and Research) in June 2017. Prior to that she worked as a Research Fellow and then Senior Research Fellow in Psychology Applied to Health, and since joining the University of Exeter Medical School in November 2012 has contributed to teaching and led and supported research focussed on the development and evaluation of evidence-based behaviour change interventions to prevent and manage chronic illness. Jane has skills in quantitative health services and public health research and broad interests in psychosocial aspects of health and illness. Her research includes:

  • systematic reviews
  • randomised controlled trials of complex interventions
  • process evaluations alongside interventions
  • development and testing of outcome measures
  • other related, mixed methods research investigating the role of behavioural and other psychosocial factors in health, illness and healthcare.

Qualifications

  • 2009 PhD Health Psychology (University of East Anglia)
  • 2006 PGCert Higher Education Practice (University of East Anglia)
  • 2002 PGDip Health Sciences (University of East Anglia)
  • 1995 BSc (Hons) Psychology (University of Nottingham)

Career

Jane is an honorary Lecturer, and was previously employed as a Lecturer in Health Psychology (from 2003) and researcher (from 1999), in the Norwich Medical School at the University of East Anglia where she also completed a part-time PhD in health psychology. This followed a period working in Australia as a Research Assistant as part of a Physical Activity and Health research group at Deakin University, and previously in project management and health administration roles at a Division of General Practice in Melbourne. Jane began her research career prior to that as a Research Assistant in a Research and Development Support Unit hosted by what was then the Department of Social Medicine at the University of Bristol.

Research

Research interests

Jane’s research focuses primarily on the development and evaluation of evidence-based behaviour change and other complex interventions to prevent and manage chronic illness, now as part of the Primary Care Research Group led by Prof John Campbell.

Previously, her research mainly focused on psychosocial aspects of chronic disease management (e.g. asthma, arthritis, adherence to medication and other aspects of self-management, depression in chronic illness) but since joining the University of Exeter Medical School in 2012 has shifted more towards chronic disease prevention (e.g. weight management, diabetes prevention).

All Jane's research has involved working with multi-disciplinary teams of academics, clinicians, other professionals and public and patient representatives across primary and secondary care, and more recently the public health sector. She has led and supported randomised controlled trials, economic evaluations and systematic reviews of complex interventions, development and testing of questionnaires and other outcome measures, and related quantitative and mixed methods research investigating behavioural and other psychosocial risk factors for, and impacts of, chronic disease.
