Biography

Dr Jennifer Brown is a general physician with a particular interest in perioperative medicine, as well as end of life decision-making and palliative care.

Dr Jennifer Brown is a general physician with a particular interest in perioperative medicine, as well as end-of-life decision-making and palliative care. She believes that end-of-life care should be approached honestly and openly with patients and their families aiming to minimise suffering while respecting each individual’s cultural and spiritual beliefs. She’s committed to providing holistic care with the understanding that emotional wellbeing can play a part in physical wellbeing and that best practice treatment involves exploring both aspects with each patient.

Jennifer graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1972 with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, before emigrating to Australia to complete her internal medicine training. Since becoming a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 1978, she has held positions at a number of hospitals across Brisbane both as a consultant and senior management roles.
