Jane Evely

PhD Student


Jane is a PhD student working under the supervision of Dr Gordon Hay. Her PhD is looking at alcohol use in the context of hepatitis C and will involve interviewing people who inject drugs about their alcohol use.

Jane qualified as a nurse in 2001 and has since had a varied career working in; an Emergency Department; Theatre Recovery; Glastonbury Music Festival; Australia and more recently in South Sudan. Her main work in South Sudan was to supervise and train local staff, however she also assisted with the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey which involved visiting rural communities to ask questionnaires about health, nutrition and sanitation behaviours.

She currently works as a Research Nurse at the University of Liverpool and Royal Liverpool Hospital, where her responsibilities involve governance and trial set up, as well as consenting patients on to a variety of different research projects.

Prior to nursing she obtained a BA (Hons) in Health Studies and in 2003 obtained a M(Med)Sci in Health Care Studies, which used a critical analysis of primary research to gain an understanding of how nurses assess patients’ pain when patients are unable to verbalise.
