Personal profile


Jacqueline Frayne is a GP who divides her career between clinical practice, academic work and research. She works in a community General Practice where she not only manages the care of patients but also supervisor’s medical students through their GP clinical placements.  Additionally she works as a medical officer at King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women (KEMH). Her work there is centred on antenatal care, though a significant proportion of this is involved in care for women with a severe mental illness in pregnancy through a dedicated clinic. She is also an academic, teaching at the University in General Practice and clinical skills. Her research interest commenced after completing a Masters in Women’ Health at Melbourne University in 2000 and is in all aspects of translational women's health. She is currently completing her PhD on antenatal care and identifying factors associated with poorer outcomes in pregnant women with a diagnosed severe mental illness.
