She is currently on a steering group overseeing the introduction of ?generic? rehabilitation support workers into intermediate care settings with North Staffordshire.

Within this, she is interested in the introduction of new roles through the growth of support workers. Susan trained as a podiatrist in Australia and has worked in a range of clinical roles, including Aboriginal health, private practice, primary health care delivery in northern India, chief podiatrist and multidisciplinary service manager for a community health service. She completed her PhD at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, Australian National University on the role of health outcomes in accountability systems for community health services.

She has written a book for the South Yorkshire healthcare confederation on Intermediate Healthcare.


[This book provides] much needed guidance and examples of good practice for the UK and other interested parties abroad. Many workers (especially in parts of the UK) want to study NVQs and cannot get access to them, so this book will also help them? I like the ?typical day? approach as this gives examples and can answer frequently asked questions. It is also easy for the reader to follow. This book appears to get right into the subject from the workplace level and give a variety of styles, i.e. case studies, problem solving, diagrams? I believe this work is extremely important. There is nothing like it out there and there is a real need for it. Catherine Smith, Assistants Officer, The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy 'I recommend this book as a companion guide for rehabilitation staff and supervisors. reflective questions and international references make it a must for most physical medicine settings' Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, October 2007
