Biographical details

Professor Rachel Skinner has been a teaching and research clinical academic in the Discipline of Child and Adolescent Health, Sydney University, and Adolescent Physician at the Children’s Hospital Westmead since 2007. Her research program concerns public health, bio-psychosocial, behavioural and ethical aspects of adolescent health. Her work is notable for its inter-disciplinary nature, and for translation of findings into real world interventions with clear impact on health outcomes. She is known internationally for her work on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine efficacy, effectiveness and school vaccination programs; and for work on origins of early and risky sexual behaviour, contraception and early pregnancy in adolescents.

Her methodological approach is broad: including prospective cohort studies, population based cross-sectional studies, community based intervention evaluation, qualitative inquiry and clinical trials. She works in a range of settings, including schools, health services and the on-line social media space. She has developed, using formative work, complex, innovative, multi-faceted interventions for health promotion of young people, and developed and validated the measures to capture impact on outcomes. To evaluate these interventions, she has undertaken population level randomised controlled trials (in schools), using intensive process evaluation, with a mixed methods approach.

Her work involves participation of young people at each stage of the research process. I am highly experienced at recruitment and retention of adolescent participants and in the ethical aspects of conducting sensitive research with this age group, in the constraints of the school setting.

Research interests

Prof Skinner's current research program spans several areas within the field of sexual and reproductive health, including 1) teenage pregnancy, condom and contraception use, 2) the correlates and antecedents of teenage sexual risk taking, 3) knowledge and acceptability, and promotion of HPV vaccination in school based and clinic vaccination programs in Australia, and 3) clinical trials of HPV vaccines.

More recently Prof Skinner has led and contributed to projects and supervised students on the topics of 1) social media use by adolescents and its impact on sexual relationships and health, and 2) sexuality and gender diversity in children and adolescents. She is actively seeking students and new collaborations in these fields of work.

Teaching and supervision

Prof Skinner contributes to teaching medical student in paediatrics in the Sydney Medical School and to teaching adolescent health within the curriculum. She is responsible for coordinating the Adolescent Module in Sydney Medical School's on-line Master of Medicine in Paediatrics. She is a deputy postgraduate coordinator for the Discipline of Child and Adolescent Health (over 100 postgraduate research students enrolled). She received a Vice-Chancellor's award for excellence in postgraduate research supervision in 2017.
