Location: Room 6134 Sir Frank Lampl Building, Kingston Hill


Dr Jayne Price is associate professor in children's nursing, a post she took up in March 2014.

Jayne's clinical background is in children's oncology nursing. She was a clinical nurse specialist in children's palliative care, working with children who had advanced cancer and their families.

More recently, her experience has encompassed improving care for children with palliative needs (both cancer and non-malignant conditions) and their families, through education and research. Jayne has been instrumental in developing continuing education opportunities for professionals working within the field of children's palliative care, and also in ensuring palliative care is embedded within the undergraduate nursing programme. She has received a number of awards for both education and research in recognition of her work within children's palliative care.

With a specific interest in the psychosocial needs of parents living through the loss of a child, Jayne's doctoral study focused on parents' perspectives of caring for an infant/child with a life-limiting condition.

Having presented and published widely within the field of children's nursing, nurse education and palliative care, Jayne and her colleague Patricia McNeilly edited a book in 2009, titled 'Palliative care for children and families: An interdisciplinary approach', which has recorded sales worldwide.

Jayne has also been involved in a number of international projects establishing educational initiatives with students to ensure a more global focus for their learning.

In 2015 Jayne became a Trustee of Shooting Star Chase Children'S Hospices Surrey
