Biography summary

Jane has a PhD in health psychology from Royal Holloway University of London. She is a chartered psychologist, an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Career highlights

Jane's leadership roles include being the Lead for the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) national development program ‘mental health and diabetes’ and lead author of the Diabetes Australia position statement ‘A new language for diabetes’.

Jane's research translation achievements include being a founding member of the DAFNE (‘dose adjustment for normal eating’) education program, which has trained more than 30,000 adults with type 1 diabetes in the UK since 2001, more than 2000 in Australia/New Zealand since 2005, and is also available in Kuwait and Singapore.

Jane is author of 60+ peer-reviewed journal publications and book chapters, more than 100 conference presentations. Over the past decade, she has been an investigator on research attracting funds of $11.3million, with over $8.2million achieved since 2010.

Research interests

Jane has a well-established portfolio of research in behavioural, psychological and social aspects of diabetes and is widely regarded as one of the leading psychologists specialising in diabetes in the UK and Australia. Her principle research interests focus broadly on improving the quality of life of people with diabetes and optimising their self-care. Her research interests include:

- evaluating and enhancing provision of structured diabetes education

- restoring impaired awareness of hypoglycaemia and preventing recurrent severe hypoglycaemia

- expectations, experiences and optimisation of new diabetes treatments and technologies

- the experience of social stigma related to diabetes

- monitoring and reducing diabetes-related distress

- investigating the needs of specific populations, e.g. young adults with type 2 diabetes, adolescents with type 1 diabetes, women with diabetes planning and during pregnancy.

Jane is widely regarded as an authority on the development, use and interpretation of measures of psychological processes and outcomes in diabetes, also known as patient-reported outcomes (PROs). She also has interests in other long-term conditions, such as restless legs syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome and hereditary angioedema.
