My research interests include applying psychology to rehabilitation medicine, such as goal-setting and facilitating adherence to exercise therapy, for a number of different chronic conditions including stroke, low back pain and urinary incontinence.
I use qualitative and mixed methods approaches for my research. A recently published textbook captures much of my approach to rehabilitation research and teaching; I was the lead editor for the book and contributed as author to five of the seven chapters: Dean, S.G., Siegert, R.J. & Taylor, W.J. (editors). (2012) Interprofessional Rehabilitation: a person-centred approach. Wiley Blackwell: Oxford.
As part of my PenARC role I am also the academic lead for the peninsula wide Making Sense of Evidence workshops. These one-day workshops are open to clinicians, NHS staff, applied health researchers as well as patients and members of the public who are involved with PenARC.
