Lecturer, Occupational Therapy
School of Allied Health Science and Practice
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
I am a teaching and research lecturer within the School of Allied Health Science and Practice. My background is as a clinical Occupational Therapist, with 13 years of broad clinical experience in acute and community rehabilitation with specialised skills in amputee rehabilitation, geriatrics, burns, orthopaedics and falls. I have strong research interests in the area of aged care and falls, dementia and translation of knowledge into clinical practice within the rehabilitation setting. My research exploring the perceptions of older people and falling through my Masters in Health Science had a qualitative focus, however evaluation of a manual wheelchair skills program among people with lower limb imputations used a mixed methods approach. I have 2 published journal articles
