Jenny is a clinical academic research fellow (CARF), jointly funded by GCU and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde till 2019. She works 2 days per week as a sexual health nurse in Sandyford sexual health service in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and 2 days in the sexual health team at GCU. Jenny completed her GCU funded PhD based on sexual risk taking for sexually transmitted infections among middle-aged and older adults in 2016.

She is currently pursuing further research towards designing a risk-reducing intervention for this age group. Her CARF role is enabling Jenny to bring a nursing perspective to the sexual health team and to support sexual health nurses in applying a research “lens” to their work. Jenny’s research interests are in qualitative research, older adults’ sexual health and wellbeing and risk reduction for sexually transmitted infections.
