Biographical details

Jennifer Fraser is Associate Professor at Sydney Nursing School and past Director of Research Students and Research Development at the faculty. She is a Registered Nurse and Midwife with postgraduate qualifications including Master of Nursing and a PhD in Applied Psychology. She joined the University of Sydney in 2010 after holding academic positions at QUT (Senior Lecturer) and Griffith University (Lecturer, School of Nursing, and Research Fellow, School of Applied Psychology). Associate Professor Fraser commenced her clinical practice as a paediatric nurse in Brisbane, working in this field for approximately a decade before transitioning to midwifery. While working as a midwife she obtained further qualifications including a Master of Nursing at QUT and later completed her PhD in Applied Psychology at Griffith University. Given her clinical background and postgraduate qualifications in applied psychology, Associate Professor Fraser’s predominant research interests include maternal and child health, in particular the prevention of child abuse and neglect in vulnerable families. Her work is focused on early intervention, developing parenting capacity, and improving professional self-efficacy among paediatric health care professionals. Associate Professor Fraser has been involved in research, development and evaluation of a number of child protection programs/interventions. Along with Prof Sharon Dawe of Griffith University, she developed the Parents Under Pressure (Babies) Program for Mothers on Methadone Maintenance. She also participated in the development and implementation of strategies to reduce alcohol, tobacco and illicit drug use during pregnancy and throughout the first year of parenting, and in studies to drive organisational change to promote the prevention of child abuse and neglect in tertiary neonatal health care settings that treat drug-exposed newborns. In a field of high social impact, Associate Professor Fraser has published widely – since 2010, she has published 14 peer-reviewed papers and two invited editorials. She is the Australasian Editor of the Journal of Child Health Careand past Chair of the Management Board of the Neonatal, Paediatric and Child Health Nursing Journal. Furthermore, currently she is the lead author of a textbook entitled ‘Paediatric Nursing in Australia: Principles for Practice’ (co-authors: Associate Professor Donna Waters, Dr Elizabeth Forster and Ms Nicola Brown) – a role she has undertaken at the invitation of publisher (Cambridge University Press). Importantly, as a passionate advocate for child protection, Associate Professor Fraser makes significant contributions internationally. She has worked alongside UNICEF and the Vietnamese Ministry of Health, to help raise awareness of and prevent family violence. As part of the ‘Safe Children Vietnam’ program, she has worked to develop training programs (which have been translated into Vietnamese) to assist emergency department staff in identifying family violence, child abuse and neglect and to encourage recognition as well as referral of at-risk parents to support services. Additionally, Associate Professor Fraser is a long-standing and active member of the International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect – she frequently presents at the society’s Congress and reviews papers submitted to the society’s journal. She is a regular invitee for presentations at international conferences and workshops on the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

Associate Professor Fraser also is actively involved with government and professional organisations, in influencing policy and practice in nursing, education and health. She has held membership of professional boards, and participated in expert advisory committees. Currently, she is involvedin the Australian College of Children and Young People’s Nurses (ACCYPN) reference group Standards of Care Project. She is past Chair of the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Councils’ review of the University of Melbourne Master of Advanced Nursing Practice (Nurse Practitioner) course, was a Member of the 2012 parliamentary inquiry into Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, and participated as the ACCYPN’s representative on the 2009 Nurturing and Protecting Children: Nursing and Midwifery Curriculum Standards Project. In addition, she is a past Vice President of the Confederation of Paediatric and Child Health Nurses Queensland Branch and past Member of the Early Childhood Advisory Group for Department of Housing’s Community Renewal Project Palm Island.

Associate Professor Fraser has demonstrated a sustained record of leadership and professional service at Sydney Nursing School and in the broader Division of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy (MDNP) at the university. During her time as Director of Research Students and Research Development at Sydney Nursing School, Associate Professor Fraser made important contributions to strategic directions for the faculty and the University of Sydney through the development of research pathways, units and courses and through membership of the university’s Academic Board. In addition to her research activities, Associate Professor Fraser undertakes substantial teaching commitments. Backed by her previous extensive experience in coordinating and teaching paediatric nursing, child health nursing and research courses from Bachelors to advanced Masters degree levels, Associate Professor Fraser teaches a number of units of study at Sydney Nursing School and supervises PhD and Master of Philosophy students. Currently, she is a member of the University of Sydney Human Research Ethics Committee and a member of the Sydney South East Asian Centre’s Management Board.

Research interests

Associate Professor Fraser’s research is focused on developing parenting capacity, and improving professional self-efficacy in paediatric and child health care. Her major field of research expertise is child protection, child psychology and development, and maternal and child health. She also has worked on developing and validating tools to progress these areas of research. Associate Professor Fraser has an outstanding record of collaboration with members of external organisations including nurses and other clinicians, and researchers from a range of disciplines including medicine, psychology, law, public health and social work. Associate Professor Fraser was a Chief Investigator in the ‘Improving the measurement and surveillance of child abuse in Queensland’ study, which was a large and complex study that examined the quality of information regarding child abuse recorded in emergency departments and hospital records in Queensland, and the concordance of these data sources with child protection data sources. The results were presented at XIX ISPCAN International Congress on Child Abuse and Neglect, Istanbul, Turkeyin 2012, which led to an invitation to Associate Professor Fraser to collaborate with researchers in Canada and an invitation to write an editorial published in the February 2013 special edition of Child Abuse and Neglect the International Journal.Associate Professor Fraser remains interested in healthcare professionals’ motivations in reporting child abuse and neglect (especially in the context of unborn children where the parent(s) or the family situation are considered high risk). She led an analysis of the reporting behaviour of 930 health care professionals – conducted in Australia, and has developed measures of professional efficacy in reporting child abuse and neglect used in a number of studies including the ‘Safe Children Viet Nam project’ (see below).

Associate Professor Fraser has studied risk-reduction interventions for child abuse and neglect among families under stress, including when a child has chronic illness. She conducted the ‘Evaluation of a brief parenting intervention for parents of children suffering asthma or eczema’ study – this work also led to an international collaboration. Associate Professor Fraser’s team validated a research tool for the paediatric population, by adapting Professor Steven Ersser’s self-efficacy measure.

Additional qualitative research includes a study of the health care experience of drug-dependent parents who are caring for newborns including surveying the attitudes of nurses and midwives to these parents.

Internationally,Associate Professor Fraser is currently leading the development and evaluation of a clinical traininginitiative in Vietnam. The UBS Optimus-funded research project entitled‘Identifying and responding to child abuse and neglect in paediatricemergency departments in Vietnam’isan extension ofthe research shecompleted following enactment of mandatory reporting legislation in Queensland in 2005 andwhich she is currently conducting as a follow-up studyin rural NSW. Thisprogram of research builds the relationship between research, policy and practice.
