Biographical details

Dr Janet Cheung is Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice at the School of Pharmacy, University of Sydney. She is a registered pharmacist with a broad research interest in empowering patient participation in their own health care. Her expertise in sleep research spans across patient engagement, quality use of sleep medications and shared decision-making. Janet completed her doctoral training in 2016 at the School of Pharmacy. Her PhD focused on mapping out patients’ decision-making processes when selecting treatment options for insomnia, integrating principles of sociology, pharmacy practice and health economics. Following from the PhD, Janet was awarded a prestigious international postdoctoral scholarship funded by the Fonds de reserche du Quebec- Nature et technologies (FRQNT) to undertake a research fellowship at the Centre d'étude des troubles du sommeil (CETS), Laval University, Quebec Canada. Through this fellowship, Janet developed a shared-decision-making framework as part of a larger pragmatic clinical trial, funded through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, to implant insomnia services into primary care. Janet was also the recipient of the World Sleep Young Investigator Award in 2017 for her work on the longitudinal patterns of sleep medication use in a community setting. She is currently an Associate Editor for Behavioral Sleep Medicine.
