MA MSC DPhil SRN SCM
Jill Dawson is a visiting researcher in the Applied Health Research Unit. Following a previous career in nursing, she graduated from St Catherine’s College (Human Sciences, University of Oxford), then attained an MSc in Medical Sociology & Social Research Methods Applied to Medicine (University of London) before joining Oxford University (Department of Public Health), as a researcher, in 1987. From 2001 Jill was employed by Oxford Brookes University (Reader in HSR, School of Health & Social Care) before re-joining the department (HSRU, University of Oxford) in 2005.
Jill initially undertook research on the health and sexual behaviour of homosexually active men in relation to HIV and AIDS, leading to a DPhil in 1996. Since then, her main research interests have been patient reported outcomes and health status measurement, and methodology. In addition to conducting surveys, evaluation and case-control studies, Jill has extensive experience of developing and validating outcome measures, (including Oxford Hip, Knee and shoulder Scores; MOXFQ, ANCA-Associated Vasculitis PRO), and, in collaboration with others, has applied these measures in studies (observational and RCTs) using these instruments as primary end-points. She has published over 130 peer reviewed papers.
