Dr Jane Horne, Research Fellow

Jane, an occupational therapist by background, was keen to develop her interest in research and joined the Division of Rehabilitation and Ageing in 2009, as treating therapist on the randomised controlled DRESS study, based on an acute stroke unit. She was later employed as a research associate on multi-centre stroke rehabilitation RCT, entitled 'Getting Out of the House.'

In 2011 she was successful in gaining a Stroke Association Junior Fellowship Award, to undertake a PhD looking at regaining confidence after a stroke, and is developing a confidence measure as part of her studies.
