‘I am passionate about improving the patient journey through stroke services.’ GAIL CARIN-LEVY SENIOR LECTURER, OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY AND ART THERAPY I’m an Occupational Therapy Lecturer currently in the closing stretches of a part time PhD. I am interested in researching various aspects of life after stroke, currently my main focus is on the process of identifying a delirium in the acute stages of stroke. My past work has examined the value of engaging in purposeful activities, which is another area which I am passionate about - particularly the field of physical activities as contributors to the quality of life of various groups of people. I’m fortunate to have been able to work with Professor Gillian Mead, a UK expert on life after stroke. She has inspired me to pursue my areas of research and to widen my research portfolio, so that I have gained invaluable experience utilising a wide variety of research methodologies. E R A T I N G O L B I am passionate about improving the patient journey through stroke services and after completing my PhD I plan to continue my research into various aspects of stroke care.
