Jane Fleming


Senior Research Associate


Dr Jane Fleming joined the University of Cambridge’s Department of Public Health and Primary Care in 2000 for training in epidemiology and statistics from a clinical and research background primarily in nursing older people, osteoporosis and fracture prevention. She is a study co-ordinator for the Cambridge City over-75s Cohort (CC75C) study, and during her health services research doctorate she expanded the CC75C study’s focus to include a prospective study of falls amongst over-90-year-olds. She has since been leading a project combining qualitative and quantitative methodologies to examine end-of-life care issues from the perspective of very old people and their carers in collaboration with colleagues in the General Practice and Primary Care Research Unit. She is involved in a variety of research, research dissemination and service evaluation projects relating to quality of life, mobility, disability and activity, complex care needs, dementia and end of life care in older old age.
