Emily.Hansen@utas.edu.au

Emily Hansen is a sociologist whose areas of specialisation are medical sociology and qualitative research methods. Her research investigates health related practices (such as breastfeeding, vaccination or smoking), the processes of medical practice (such as diagnosis), and how medical and lay people negotiate competing discourses and sources of information about health when explaining and managing illness or making decisions. She has an overarching interest in health inequalities and the relationship between health and place. Her research is often collaborative, applied and cross disciplinary. It is characterised by a breadth of scholarship and contributes to knowledge bases in sociology, aged care, public health, primary health care and social epidemiology. Emily  places considerable value on research capacity building and research mentoring  in the university and broader Tasmanian community.

Biography

Emily is currently employed as a senior lecturer in sociology in the Sociology Program, School of Social Science at the University of Tasmania. Prior to this appointment she held three other academic positions, all in the Faculty of Health Science at the University of Tasmania. Her first academic appointment was within an externally funded research capacity building program called the Primary Health Care Research Evaluation and Development Program Research Capacity Building Initiative (PHCRED RCBI) (funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing) based in the then School of Medicine. She was promoted to be program coordinator for the PHCRED RCBI in 2005. In August 2007 she was appointed as a Research Fellow in Primary Health Care at the Menzies Research Institute Tasmania (a public health research institute at Utas). This position was funded by a career development research fellowship offered on a highly competitive basis as part of the national PHCRED strategy. She was appointed as a Lecturer in Sociology in the then School of Sociology and Social Work in the Faculty of Arts in January 2011. Emily was promoted to Senior Lecturer in January 2013. She has taken career breaks to have children and worked part time on her return.

Research Themes

Emily's research aligns to the University theme areas of Better Health and Creativity, Culture and Society. It is focused around health and medical issues and is unpinned by a sociological perspective that requires ongoing attention be paid to issues of social structure, culture, history and the relationship between individuals and society. This sociological perspective combines with the use of sociological research methods such as qualitative and mixed methods research to produce innovative and relevant research.For example while it is well accepted that health related behaviours are socially patterned sociological understanding of the processes through which social structure shapes the health related behaviours of individuals remains limited. This is the structure/agency conundrum. Emily has conducted research investigating smoking, breastfeeding and now vaccination that increases understanding of the relationship between practices undertaken by individuals and their social location.

Dietary habits of recent refugee migrants to Australia (2017)$7,564
Description
We aim to assess the changes in dietary habits of recently arrived humanitarian refugee migrants from Nepal and Bhutan.

Our collaboration brings sociological/criminological researchers with expertise in migrant health and criminal justice, conducting research among vulnerable populations, smoking and cross-disciplinary mixed methods research together with a research psychologist and biomedical scientist who both have expertise in conducting medical research (including smoking research), biostatistics and clinical trials.

Pathways to better health and education outcomes for Tasmanias children (2016 - 2018)$803,171
Description
All Australian states and territories provide universal health and education services for children under the age of five. The need for these servicesis starkly illustrated by the latest national figures that show that one in five children are behind in their development when they start school at the age of five. For far too many of these children, a poor start predicts a poor future. This is especially true for children growing up in Tasmania, which has the highest poverty rate, lowest school completion rate and shortest life expectancy rate, than any other state or territory.The Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Department of Education (DoE) and Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPaC) are working hard to address these problems in innovative ways to improve the lives and prospects of young Tasmanians. This project brings these government departments together with researchers, service providers and consumers to better understand the combined benefit of early childhood services in Tasmania. The power of data linkage, quantitative and qualitative methods will be combined to provide partners with a whole-of-population view of the impact of service use on child outcomes, taking risk and protective factors into account, and including the perspectives of service providers and consumers. The project will track 12,000 children from birth, through all the health and education services available up to the start of formal school at age five. The information will be used to review and reform existing services to increase the reachand benefits of services for all children, especially those with high service needs.

Thriving Communities Healthy Families Evaluation (2015 - 2016)$50,016
Description
TCHF is a place based project which seeks to connect disenfranchised at risk young families with their local neighbourhood house to* Improve their access to services and programs.* Connect them with community supports and promote social inclusion.* Empower families to take greater responsibility for their own health and well-being.* Enhance health and well-being outcomes in the long term. The evaluation seeks to determine what worked in what circumstances for at risk families and to build the evidence base for place based social policy interventions. The project includes an evaluation capacity component in recognition that community service organisations, such as Neighbourhood Houses, often have low skills base in evaluation and limited resources to purchase training and development in this area, despite increasing pressures from funders to demonstrate program outcomes.
