Rheumatology and gout

Research

Rebecca is an academic rheumatologist who is passionate about patient-focused care and engaging with colleagues in primary and secondary care to provide the highest quality collaborative care for people with arthritis.

A University of Otago medical graduate, she undertook rheumatology training in Melbourne and her PhD examined inflammatory mechanisms in gout. Rebecca’s clinical work focuses on assessment and management of inflammatory arthritis and her particular clinical interests include inflammatory arthritis, gout and scleroderma.

Rebecca’s academic interests include outcome measures, non-pharmacological management of musculoskeletal disease, use of information technology solutions to optimise care for people with chronic rheumatic diseases and medical education.

Research and Interests:

  • Development and assessment of mobile health tools for clinical care and self-care for clinicians and health care users.
  • Social media for participatory health and medical education
  • Enhancing engagement and active learning in medical education
  • Outcome measures in musculoskeletal and rheumatic disease
  • Gout including inflammatory mechanisms, pharmacological treatment and clinical assessment
  • Rebecca is also interested in supervising postgraduate students in any of the research areas listed above. Please contact me directly.
