Angela Berndt

Program Director Occupational Therapy - INVITED SPEAKER, University of South Australia

Professional Bio

Dr Berndt is an occupational therapist and academic.  She graduated in 1987 and worked in inpatient, rehabilitation, community, forensic and residential settings with adult clients.  

In 1998 she completed her driver assessment and rehabilitation training and began her research career with participation in a study of people with dementia and driving capacity.  That study later became the basis of her doctoral thesis.  Her research focus continues to explore the occupational relationships to dementia, disability, driving and community mobility, with some side trips into clinical reasoning and teaching and learning research. 

Since moving from the health sector to education, Angela has won four teaching awards and three Chancellor’s awards for community engagement.  She is Program Director of Occupational Therapy at University of South Australia.  Angela graduated from the Australian Institute of Company Directors course and was the President of Board of Occupational Therapy Australia.
