Rosie is a Research Fellow currently working on the NIHR-funded RECREATE programme grant. This is aimed at enhancing health for stroke survivors by  reducing sedentary behaviour.

She originally qualified as an Occupational Therapist, and has since worked at the Bradford Institute for Health Research on a number of health intervention studies: Care transitions for older patients moving from hospital to home; Longer term care after stroke; Person-centred care for people with dementia in hospital; Models of high and low performing community hospitals.

Rosie’s experience includes: complex mixed methods research in hospital settings; working with older people who may have cognitive impairment; qualitative methods including observation and interview. She completed her MSc in Health Research in 2012, which included a qualitative investigation of self-reported low-level unmet need after stroke.
