Discipline/Expertise:My research is primarily in neurological rehabilitation and includes
developing and testing of rehabilitation strategies to increase activity and
participation after stroke, translating evidence into practiceand clinical
education. Although the majority of my research has focused on stroke, my
research interests are across the lifespan with projects involving children
with cerebral palsy; prevention of falls in older persons and also other
neurological conditions including Parkinson¿s disease.
Keywords:Stroke rehabilitation, falls prevention, physical activity
