Webinar: Translating findings from the ‘Out with Cancer’ study into training materials

Join us for LGBTIQ+ Health Australia's first webinar of 2024, which delved into understanding cancer in LGBTIQ+ communities.

Professor Jane Ussher, Chief Investigator of Western Sydney University's Out With Cancer Study, translates the research findings on LGBTIQ+ experiences of cancer and cancer care into practical advice for professionals in our sector.

Jane M Ussher is a Professor of Women’s Health Psychology, in the Translational Health Research Institute, and School of Medicine, at Western Sydney University. Her research focuses on sexual and reproductive embodiment, and the gendered experience of cancer and cancer care.

As a trained clinical psychologist, she has also made a contribution to the integration of research and clinical practice in gendered health, and has developed and evaluated a number of psycho-educational interventions in the field of cancer care. Jane is author of over 300 papers and chapters, 12 books, and is editor of the Routledge Women and Psychology book series, and the journal Women’s Reproductive Health. She is leading an ARC Linkage funded research study, on LGBTQI+ experiences of cancer, in collaboration with The Cancer Council NSW, PCFA, LHA, ACON, BCNA, Sydney Children's Hospital Network and Canteen.
