Biography

Following her retirement in 2011, Dr Ann Mackenzie was awarded the title of Emeritus Professor for her exceptional contribution to healthcare research and education over a long career. She continues to be actively involved with postgraduate research students and research studies in her field.

Ann joined Kingston & St George's in 2002 and led an established multidisciplinary team of researchers investigating the psychosocial impact of stroke and long term conditions on adult family carers. Strong working relationships with the acute and rehabilitation units at St George's Hospital and the Wolfson Rehabilitation Centre enhanced this work and resulted in research funding, high quality publications, and postgraduate studentships. More recently, research partners have also included voluntary organisations and GPs to investigate care-giving for older people.

Ann's clinical background is mainly in community nursing. She moved into teaching and academic work in the late 1980s and spent four years at King's College London and nine years at the Chinese University of Hong Kong where she was head of the Department of Nursing. She established formal links between the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education which resulted in staff exchanges to promote shared educational and research activities.

Ann's research interests are in rehabilitation of older people and the psychosocial aspects of long-term illness experienced by family carers. She has published extensively on these subjects with the aim of contributing evidence for clinical practice.
