Biographical details

Graduated from the Derby School of Occupational Therapy in the UK in 1981, and worked as an OT in a variety of adult rehabilitation settings and social services programs in Sheffield and London prior to emigrating to Australia in 1986 to work in Newcastle NSW. Worked in orthopaedics,general medicine and managed the Hunter Equipment Service and PADP services before being appointed asthe first OT employed by community health services in Newcastle to implement the Home and Community Care home modifications service in the Hunter region. After working as the Head OT at Maitland Hospital, began academic work as a foundation staff member of the new undergraduate OT program at the University of Newcastle in 1991, and co-ordinated their fieldwork program for 7 years as well as teaching and developing the problem based learning curriculum there. Completed my PhD in epidemiology in 2002 by investigating falls amongst older people in NSW and Qld as part of the DVA Preventive Care Trialwhich formed the basis for the over 75s check later implemented by Medicare. Moved to Sydney in 2007 to co-ordinate the revised MOT program, and am currently involved in several research project related to older people in the community.
