Associate Professor Sarah Dean

Associate Professor in Psychology Applied to Rehabilitation and Health

2984

College House 2.19

I have extensive experience of working in interdisciplinary environments for both teaching and research at the Universities of Southampton, Otago (New Zealand) and Exeter including my current role within the South West Peninsula Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Research in Health Care (PenCLAHRC). I have a dual professional background as a Chartered Physiotherapist and a Chartered Psychologist with two higher degrees in Health Psychology. I worked clinically in both the NHS and private sector, specialising in musculoskeletal rehabilitation, particularly exercise therapy for sports injuries and cardiac rehabilitation. During this time I was also training and competing as an international athlete for Great Britain in the 400m Hurdles. My expertise in health psychology includes recent Behaviour Change Taxonomy work and methodological input for the process evaluation component of large multi-centre clinical trials.

Research

Research interests

I am interested in applying psychology to rehabilitation medicine, including goal-setting and behaviour change strategies for facilitating adherence to exercise therapy and physical activity. I use mixed methods for my research (quantitative and qualitative) and this expertise is much sought after for providing process evaluation and behaviour change methodological input for large collaborative multi-centre clinical trials. From 2016 I will be a key investigator on over £6 million worth of National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) funded randomised control trials and other projects.
