Research

Research Interest: My research and teaching background is in neuroscience, rehabilitation and ethics. My current research involves a cognitive-behavioral intervention delivered via telehealth to improve the health status and quality of life in people with a newly acquired disability. The goal of my research is to demonstrate a cost effective intervention during the transition from rehabilitation to the home to prevent complications and hospital readmissions, thus enhancing quality of life and improving health status in people with disability and their caregivers. Areas of research expertise include grounded theory, mixed methods and theory building.  A secondary research interest is Interprofessional Education and Practice, and the student and patient outcomes resulting from those collaborations.
