Dr Marie-Louise Bird is an Australian registered Physiotherapist, whose main focus of research is to improve engagement of people with chronic conditions like stroke, with relevant types of physical activity and exercise, with the goal of reducing sedentary behaviour and reducing fall risks. She currently investigates the application of a number of knowledge translation tools to impact clinical practice with international colleagues. She actively engages end users of her research with integrated knowledge translation approaches and is passionate about health literacy and extending the reach of the health care system into communities to improve transitions in care.
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
