Professor of Pulmonary and Cardiac Rehabilitation
Applied Research Centre in Health & Lifestyle Interventions
FACULTY OF HEALTH AND LIFE SCIENCES

Building: Whitefriars Building
Room: WF113
Biography:

Professor Sally Singh is based at Coventry University, in the School of Physiotherapy (Faculty of Health and Life Sciences) and at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. For several years she has been involved in the development of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Pulmonary Services. Her research interests initially focused on the development of robust outcome measures to evaluate these complex interventions. More recently research activity has focused upon service delivery. The physiological and metabolic response to exercise in patients with chronic cardio-respiratory disease is also of interest to the research group and some recent publications have explored this. She contributed to the Cochrane Review of exercise-based rehabilitation for heart failure.

Mission Statement:

The research arose as a consequence of the desire to define a change in performance that would be meaningful to patients. It would allow all services and interventions to understand what value they were adding for patients with chronic lung disease.
