Dr Jesse Jansen
A main goal of my research is to explore how adults, in particular older adults, communicate and make decisions regarding their health, with the goal of developing and implementing practical methods to improve communication and decision-making. I am particularly interested in the role of emotion and cognition and applying and testing psychological theories to health communication and decision making settings. My research uses mixed methods both in clinical and lab-based settings including video-observations, experimental studies and RCTs. I am part of the Screening and Test Evaluation Program (Sydney School of Public Health), an NHMRC program grant.
