MA MSC DPhil SRN SCM
Jill Dawson, is a Senior Research Scientist in the Nuffield Department of Population Health HSRU and is Visiting Professor at Oxford Brookes University. Following a nursing career, Jill read Human Sciences at St Catherine's college, Oxford (1982-1985), then obtained an MSc in Medical Sociology and Social Research Methods, at London University in 1986. Her early research focussed on prospective surveys of gay men’s sexual behaviour and use of health care services in relation to HIV infection. This culminated in a doctorate in 1993. Since 1993, her research interests have chiefly concerned health status measurement and methodology, including the development, evaluation and application of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs), particularly in the context of orthopaedic surgery. These have included the Oxford hip, knee, shoulder and elbow scores, and the Manchester-Oxford Foot Questionnaire (MOXFQ). This work continues to involve collaborations with a number of consultant surgeons and other researchers at the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences.
The Oxford knee score and its subscales do not exhibit a ceiling or a floor effect in knee arthroplasty patients: an analysis of the National Health Service PROMs data set.
