The development and evaluation of a remote self-managed exercise intervention incorporating combined theoretical underpinnings for physical support of persons post-stroke.
Dr. Rebecca Palmer, Dr. Simon Brownsell & Professor Pam Enderby.
I am a registered physiotherapist in Hong Kong after completing my Bachelor degree (honours) in physiotherapy from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I am also an accredited acupuncture physiotherapist in Hong Kong. Then, I received my professional title of APA-Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist from the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) with my Master degree of physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy) from the University of Melbourne in Australia. I am a qualified personal trainer by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and a qualified group leader of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) by the Stanford Patient Education Research Center in the School of Medicine at the Stanford University in the USA. I am also an accredited practitioner of Bridges stroke self-management programme by the Faculty of Health and Social Care Sciences at the St George’s University of London and Kingston University, in the UK.
I am clinically experienced in providing functional physical rehabilitation in musculoskeletal, sport and neurological areas and community-based rehabilitation in Hong Kong, China and Australia.
Prior to join ScHARR, I based in Sichuan province of the mainland China to work as the Team Leader and physiotherapist (Grade 1) of a post-disaster Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) project for a World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Rehabilitation during 2009-2011; which was funded by the Hong Kong Government. I established and managed a CBR resources centre, its branches and a team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation therapists and social workers, to provide healthcare and social services to earthquake injured and their families living in various earthquake zones in Sichuan province. I also provided professional consultancy and clinical supervision, and healthcare trainings to local healthcare and social care professionals, government officials and non-government organizations in various earthquake zones of Sichuan.
I am interested in the research of self-management for chronic conditions, functional physical rehabilitation, community-based rehabilitation services, technology and rehabilitation, and the application of technologies, especially information and communication technologies (ICTs) to deliver healthcare and rehabilitation services for long-term health conditions, including for stroke.
