Implementation of Evidence-Based Neurorehabilitation Strategies and Techniques – From the Hospital to the Home Setting Webinar - 1 Sept 2021 | Performance Health

26 September, 2021

In this recorded webinar, building on webinar 1, we discuss 3 vignettes on implementing a neurorehabilitation intervention and/or service in 3 different contexts: public hospital, paediatric population and private clinic.

In this recorded webinar, building on webinar 1, we discuss 3 vignettes on implementing a neurorehabilitation intervention and/or service in 3 different contexts: public hospital, paediatric population and private clinic. This webinar explores how to use implementation research methods to develop, implement and evaluate interventions within a neurorehabilitation setting.

  1. Apply knowledge on evidence-based neurorehabilitation to address patient / population needs.
  2. Strategies to engage consumers in high intensity practice.
  3. Matching patients with neurorehabilitation interventions.
  4. Explore how implementation research can inform sustainable practice change.
  5. Understand how to use data to support a business case for neurorehabilitation.

Therapists interested and working in neurorehabilitation in hospitals, clinics and working with NDIS participants in the home.


Hannah Neve
MSc Physiotherapy
Senior Neurological Physiotherapist and Supervisor

Hannah graduated with a Masters degree in Physiotherapy from The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland in 2013. She spent the next 3 years gaining valuable experience as a rotational physiotherapist within the NHS in England and Scotland acquiring a broad range of knowledge in several different specialties. It was during this time that she developed a strong interest in neurological physiotherapy working with different conditions including stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease and acquired brain injury.

Hannah made the move to Australia in 2017, working in a private practice before joining the team at ARC. She is passionate about assessing and analysing movement and has refined her assessment skills through experience in both musculoskeletal and neurological physiotherapy to help her clients reach their goals. Hannah has a key interest in gait and balance re-education and has enjoyed the challenge of incorporating the use of technology and robotics to help her clients get the best rehabilitation outcomes. With a passion for movement analysis and gait, Hannah has a special interest in brain and spinal cord injury rehabilitation and enjoys helping clients to regain, strength and movement to optimise function.

Alongside individualised therapy, Hannah also enjoys leading a number of the group classes at ARC. She is a PD Warrior instructor and course leader and thrives on instructing clients in a class environment to motivate them to excel to their full potential. In addition, she is the lead therapist for ARC’s NeuroCore program which incorporates Pilates style exercises and techniques to help strengthen and stabilise her clients.

In the last 10 years, Marlena has focused on health services research with a particular interest in the use of technology. She was a member of the team who established the first publicly funded technology driven upper limb rehabilitation service. Marlena prospectively identified barriers and enablers to the use of technology in clinical practice and developed a tailored approach to the training, resources and implementation of the clinic, which continues to function six years later. 

Marlena is also a postdoctoral research fellow in implementation science. Her research focuses on assisting individuals, teams and organisations to develop innovations and interventions that can sustainably be used to address evidence-practice gaps.
