About

Overview

After qualifying as a children's nurse, Jane started her clinical career in the neonatal intensive care unit and went on to study for her MSc in research methods and PhD in infection control in neonatal intensive care. She has continued her research interest in the field of infection control and is co-author of an international Cochrane review that evaluates interventions to improve hand hygiene compliance and reduce infection in patient care. The original review attracted over thirty media hits internationally in its first week of publication and its updated version continues to be widely cited; she continues to publish in this area. Following completion of her PhD, she worked in the Children’s Emergency Department which is where she specialised.

Jane worked at City previously as a Senior Lecturer in Child Health and undertook roles such as module lead, and Programme Lead as well as leading on aspects of curriculum design and achieved her PGDip Academic Practice.

After this, Jane undertook a post-doctoral fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital / UCL, Institute of Child Health exploring lung structure and function in infants diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis following newborn screening and continues to have a good relationship with the London Cystic Fibrosis Collaboration. It was this experience that helped develop Jane’s other research interest which focuses on communication with parents following screening and has led to Jane being a Principal Investigator and being invited to speak at events both nationally and internationally as well as being invited to join various national working groups. Jane is also currently the lead for the London Research in Child Health (RiCH) group.

Jane has held numerous roles in HEIs including Module Lead, Cohort Lead, Programme Lead and more recently, Deputy Head of Department. In 2014, in recognition of her achievements in teaching and learning, she was made a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
