Jackie is currently a PhD candidate in the School of Public Health, investigating medication adherence in hypertensive patients in Australia.
High blood pressure is an important risk factor for stroke and heart disease. About 40% of Australian adults have high blood pressure and many need medicines to reduce their blood pressure, but about half of patients do not take their medication correctly. My research projects aims to learn more about these patients, to calculate the costs of not taking medicines, and to develop an intervention to assist patients to take their medicines correctly using ideas from behavioural economics.
