Pauline is currently working as a lecturer below the bar in Clinical Therapies. Her research interest is informed by her clinical background as an occupational therapist and is focused on maximising participation for people with neurological and chronic conditions. This has led to her conducting research addressing how health professionals prescribe mobility equipment to people with stroke, whether support and rehabilitation services are meeting the needs of people with cancer and pulmonary disease and how family members’ coping influences participation for people with Multiple Sclerosis. Her current research projects include investigating if parks and playgrounds in Ireland meet inclusive design standards, exploring the role for remote assessment of seating and wheelchairs and in inter-professional education challenges and opportunities.
