Bio

Dr Julie Ayre is a behavioural scientist with an interest in health literacy, behaviour change for lifestyle and self-management, patient-provider relationships and mobile health. Her PhD (accepted June 2020) explored how health literacy impacts on behaviour change strategies (action plans), and how diabetes self-management apps in primary care settings could better support people with diabetes and low health literacy. During her PhD she developed and tested health-literate action plans to reduce unhealthy snacking; these are now publicly available on the Diabetes NSW & ACT website. She also collaborated with Western Sydney Diabetes to develop health-literate scripts for over 100 diabetes self-management videos, and teaches health literacy skills to allied health and medical students. She currently leads the development of an online health literacy editor to assist health professionals in developing easy-to-understand health materials.
