Dr Brian Crosbie

Brian is a sociologist by training. His primary research interests involve qualitative theory and methods. Brian’s general research interests are in the social construction of health technology and health environments as a context for care and recovery. He has experience in investigating multidisciplinary teamwork in stroke care. His current research entails the exploration of evidenced based in-hospital stroke rehabilitation.

As part of the REVIHR study, Brian is exploring, with colleagues, realist evaluation as an approach to understand the interplay of mechanisms that operate in hospital stroke rehabilitation. This work involves understanding how multidisciplinary teams organise their practice towards evidence based patient care.
