Jackie’s research focus is community participation in decision-making to support improved health policy and practice. In particular, she is interested in informed decision-making through the use of deliberative inclusive methods and development of new methods for collecting and synthesising community views.

Jackie has two major areas of research interest both within the broader area of including the community in health policy decision-making
Obesity prevention through regulation and law - The HealthyLaws project explored the evidence and community views in South Australia on the use of regulation and law for obesity prevention. HealthyViews focused on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander views. See blog link below for further information.
Patient and Public Engagement in Health Technology Assessment - HTA is a multidisciplinary field that addresses the clinical, economic, organizational, social, legal, and ethical impacts of a health technology, considering its specific healthcare context as well as available alternatives. The inclusion of patient and citizen voices in the assessment of new technologies or disinvestment from old technologies is generally poorly included in HTA. Jackie's research looks at the ways in which Australia could improve the inclusion of patient and citizen voices in HTA.
