The Neurological Rehabilitation Team (NR Team) is one of the research groups making up the Health & Rehabilitation Research Centre at AUT University. The team is lead by Professor Denise Taylor, Senior Lecturer Neurological Physiotherapy.
The team's research focuses on: studying the effectiveness of rehabilitation interventions aimed at improving outcomes for older adults transitioning to frailty and people with chronic neurological conditions; assessing the value of outcome measures used in people with neurological conditions; investigating the underlying physiological and neural control mechanisms associated with impairments and disabilities in order to develop novel intervention strategies that are specific and focussed. As a team we also work closely with the Person Centred Rehabilitation team led by Dr Kathryn McPherson. We use a variety of research methodologies and welcome collaboration with others interested in these areas.
We have links with a variety of health providers and funders which helps us to maintain a strong clinical focus and operating with these links we aim to implement high level evidence-based practice.
This information is intended to give a brief introduction to our team's work. If you would like more information about our team or our work, please contact us.
