R-L: Katie and Lesley

Dr Katie Gallacher is a GP and Stroke Association Clinical Lecturer at the University of Glasgow. She has experience of managing people with stroke in a primary care setting and has a special interest in research that examines the workload of self-management for people with stroke in the longer term. She recently completed her PhD entitled ‘Understanding treatment burden and patient capacity in people with stroke’. In her new programme of work, she is aiming to develop a method of measurement of treatment burden and patient capacity in stroke, and further work will develop and test complex interventions aimed at minimising burden and maximising capacity.

Dr Lesley Scobbie is an Occupational Therapist with over 20 years’ clinical experience gained in both the UK and USA. During this time she has developed expertise in multi-disciplinary stroke rehabilitation both in hospital and community settings. Lesley’s research has focused on developing a theory and evidence-based approach to goal setting and action planning in community-based stroke rehabilitation settings. Lesley currently holds a clinical academic post. She works as an Occupational Therapist in a community rehabilitation team in NHS Forth Valley providing direct patient care to stroke survivors and their carers. She is also the recipient of a Stroke Association Clinical Lectureship award which funds her continued research activity, hosted within Glasgow Caledonian University.
