Study Titled: Critical care patients barriers & facilitators to early rehabilitation: A qualitative interview study’

Catherine is the Team Lead Physiotherapist in Critical Care at University College London Hospital and is spending one year as a CLAHRC HEE NCEL pre-doctoral fellow. Catherine has a keen interest in early rehabilitation on critical care and the management of patients who require prolonged critical care admission.  

Catherine obtained a BSc (hons) degree in Physiotherapy at Brunel University in 2010. She then went on to complete a Master of Research Degree (MRes) in Clinical Research at City, University of London. Catherine’s MRes project was focused on exploring the relationship between patient motivation and adherence to rehabilitation in critical care. Catherine hopes to build on this work and her current research will explore the barriers to early rehabilitation on critical care.
