Jeanine has a special interest in infant care practices, breastfeeding and safe infant sleeping. She works closely with SIDS and Kids to ensure infant sleeping recommendations are evidence-based and was asked by SIDS and Kids to launch the 2012 Sleep Safe, My Baby public health campaign. Jeanine has established a research program at the University of the Sunshine Coast investigating Queensland’s relatively high infant mortality rate. The focus is evidence-based strategies and educational resources to assist health professionals and parents with young infants.

Jeanine is particularly passionate about delivering Safe Sleeping messages to parents, and addressing Close the Gap targets to reduce Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander infant mortality.

Jeanine has collaborated as a RHD supervisor for UQ doctoral students, both in the past and currently.
