Emeritus Sl. Ann Taylor

Biography

I moved from King's College London to the
University of
Limerick
in 2003 with the responsibility of establishing the Department of Physiotherapy and I was the foundation head of department until 2010. I have a long interest in the process of education, especially its delivery and evaluation, with a particular interest in Inter-professional education. My main clinical related research activity centres around cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation and I have been involved with several
UK
bodies in writing clinical guidelines for the management of people with cardiac problems.

Research Interests

Cardiac Rehabilitation;Chronic heart failure; Implementation and evaluation of Inter-professional education.
