Biographical details

Jesse Jansen is a behavioural scientist (MA Cognitive Psychology - Cum Laude; PhD Health Psychology) working in public health. She is senior Research Fellow and Sub-Dean (Early Career Researchers) at The University of Sydney, Sydney School of Public Health. She is part of the NHMRC funded Wiser Healthcare Program (reducing overdiagnosis and overtreatment) and the ASK-GP Centre for Research Excellence (rapid evidence for general practice decisions). She is co-director (Public Health) for the Centre for Medical Psychology and Evidence-based Decision-making (CeMPED), University of Sydney.

Research interests

The overarching aim of her research is to achieve a better standard of healthcare that is sustainable, patient-centred and driven by evidence. She develops interventions to guide patients, families and health care providers through critical decisions across the lifespan, with a specific focus on shared decision making and health communication. Her research is multi-disciplinary and uses a range of qualitative and quantitative methods (e.g. video-observations, qualitative interviews, focus groups, experimental studies and randomised controlled trials), strongly rooted in behavioural science. She works primarily in the area of ageing, cancer and primary care.

Current projects focus on communication and decision making around topics such as appropriate prescribing of medications for older adults, breast cancer screening, contralateral prophylactic mastectomy and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
