Janet is also experienced at writing knowledge reviews on specific subject areas. The development of these reviews often involves working with subject matter experts to develop a paper including key conclusions which can then be used to guide decision-making.
Two of these reviews have been used to advocate for national policy changes in Wellington, with both officials and politicians.
In addition to Knowledge Reviews, Janet has also written a number of academic papers which have been presented to local and international conferences. Recently, one of Janet's papers was published by the New Zealand Medical Journal.
Examples of reviews include:
- A review of child poverty literature to assist the JR McKenzie Trust to narrow the focus of one of its projects
- Development of an evidence-based case for government to support the introduction of newborn hearing screening, nationwide
- Development of a position paper for a service provider describing the basis for its work and priorities
