Jane Gunn

 

Professor Jane Gunn is Professor and Foundation Chair of Primary Care Research. Prof Gunn is a general practitioner and Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.

She completed her PhD in 1998. In 2009, she was appointed to the National Health and Medical Research Council Research Committee.

She leads a research program into mental health; focussing in particular on depression and multimorbidity. Her research harnesses the patient experience to drive health care reform. She is committed to person centred health care which places primary care at the centre of an integrated health care system.

In 2005 Professor Gunn established the diamond cohort study. Diamond has documented the experiences and outcomes of depression in primary care for the past decade. This research is one of the most comprehensive data sets of its type in the world and is the basis of much productive international collaboration.

Professor Gunn has developed a clinical prediction tool to provide tailored treatment recommendations for people experiencing depression. This tool is delivered using an App designed to be used in the primary care setting. It links people to proven online eMental health and face to face treatments for depression. It is being tested in a NHMRC funded randomised controlled trial.
