Dr Danielle Pollock is a Research Fellow within the Evidence-based Healthcare Research team at JBI. She is actively involved in the JBI Scoping Review methodology group and GIN ANZ working group.

She has extensive teaching experience in health and social science, including best practice approaches in evidence-based healthcare. She has significant experience in the development of online and internal courses for undergraduate studies.

Danielle’s previous research background is in psychology and midwifery, specialising in stillbirth and stigma. During her PhD, she developed the Stillbirth Stigma Scale, which measured the prevalence and type of stigma in bereaved parents. Her work highlighted that over half of bereaved mothers faced stigmatising attitudes and beliefs, and these experiences included being discriminated, feelings of contagiousness, isolation and unable to embrace their motherhood identity. Furthermore, Danielle’s work highlighted bereaved parents as advocates in changing the ingrained and fatalistic attitudes towards stillbirth held by clinicians, researchers, and government organisations. Her other research work includes exploring how government, non-government and health care professionals communicate with women about stillbirth.

Danielle is an Early Career Researcher who prides herself on community involvement, such as her role as co-founder of the ASAP (Australian Stillbirth for Awareness and Prevention), and member of the Still Aware Consumer Advisory Board.
