Maternity Care During COVID 19 – A Qualitative Evidence Synthesis Of I) Women’s And Ii) Midwives’ Views And Experiences
Sarah Jane is a Health Information Research Officer with HIQA and was postdoctoral researcher at University College Cork. With a background in Nutritional Sciences and Public Health, she completed her PhD as part of the SPHeRE PhD Programme at the School of Public Health, University College Cork. During her doctoral research, she examined the individual experience of food purchasing behaviour change using a health app with a specific focus on women from a lower socioeconomic background. She subsequently worked in the School of Nursing and Midwifery where she was involved in a variety of systematic reviews including international approaches to the collation, collection, and reporting of serious patient safety incidents; international practice in relation to the development of clinical audit standards; and barriers and facilitators to cancer genetic testing and counselling. Prior to her PhD, she worked in the public and community sectors where she was engaged in a broad range of projects that aimed to inform health service delivery and support population health. Sarah Jane is looking forward to drawing on her previous experience while building skills in relation to evidence synthesis to shape policy and practice and guide future research in the area of maternity care.
