Street, Jacqueline M. Dr

Research Fellow

Overview


Dr Street'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 such as citizens' juries and development of new methods for collecting and synthesising community views. Her research focus is on areas of contentious health policy including public funding for new health technologies, regulation and law for obesity prevention, and pandemics.

Research Overview


  • Jackie has particular expertise in the use of deliberative inclusive methods, including citizens’ juries, to research community views on contentious policy issues. Since her first publication in public health in 2007, she has built an international reputation in the area of community engagement for health policy and health technology assessment. Jackie also has a track record in developing innovative methods using social media analysis to include community voices in health technology assessment. 

    In 2015, in collaboration with Aboriginal community-controlled organisations and researchers, Jackie co-constructed an innovative deliberative forum using storyboard methods appropriate for use in an Aboriginal community.

    Jackie has been consulted by the Medical Services Advisory Committee (Australian Government), South Australian Department of Premier and Cabinet and Department of Health, Alberta, on best practice for community engagement. She has been invited to present on community engagement at national and international conferences and workshops, most recently in 2017 to the Association of Innovative Pharmaceutical Industry Symposium for patient organisations in Prague.
