Seline Ozer is currently working as Trial Manager on the LoTS2Care programme grant and is responsible for managing the feasibility trial of a longer-term care strategy to support stroke survivors and their carers.
Seline has worked in the Academic Unit for Ageing and Stroke Research since 2010, working across a range of projects in elderly care and stroke. She recently completed a PhD evaluating the validity of several brief cognitive tests in identifying mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in older people in the community. This study involved recruiting a large cohort of older people via their GP practice and performing various cognitive assessments with them. She was a co-applicant on the NIHR Research for Patient Benefit grant that funded the study. She has also been involved in updating Cochrane systematic reviews, including the review on Physical rehabilitation for older people in long term care.
