Jacki Liddle is an occupational therapist and researcher at the University of Queensland. She has been involved in clinical research since the turn of the century when she unsuccessfully tried to pass on a very interesting clinical question to the University Department – and has been exploring interesting questions ever since. She focuses on areas related to quality of life, participation and life transitions – particularly for older people and people with neurological conditions and their families.
Her research has developed a program to support people with driving cessation (CarFreeMe), technology to measure community mobility outcomes, and she is currently working in the engineering department where she is co-designing technology with people living the dementia, their care partners and an interdisciplinary team.
