Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Jensen has a strong research interest in biopsychosocial relationships in the context of medical illness and treatment. As a trained clinical health psychologist, she has extensive training and experience in research focused on the interrelationships between psychosocial functioning, neuroendocrine/immune functioning, physical symptom onset, and patient-reported outcomes in a variety of surgical patient populations. This line of research is grounded in the hope that a better understanding of the relationships between psychosocial functioning and surgical outcome may help to identify optimal surgical candidates, identify biological mechanisms by which psychosocial functioning may affect health outcomes, and lead to the development of future interventions to improve psychosocial functioning and surgical outcomes. Dr. Jensen’s recent research has focused on patient-reported outcomes, psychosocial functioning, physical symptoms, and medical decision-making with respect to innovative surgical and non-surgical treatments among individuals with traumatic facial injuries, candidates for transplant surgery, candidates for reconstructive surgery, oncology, women’s health, and individuals with upper limb amputations. Currently, she serves as the principal investigator of several research projects that seek to develop and apply patient-reported outcomes measures in traumatic craniomaxillofacial injuries, traumatic tissue loss and reconstructive transplantation (e.g., abdominal wall, limb, face), and veterinary surgery.
