Professor of Rehabilitation and Director, Centre for Person Centred Research
Auckland University of Technology
Dr Nicola Kayes is Professor of Rehabilitation and Director of the Centre for Person Centred Research at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand. She has a background in health psychology and her research predominantly explores the intersection between health psychology and rehabilitation. She is particularly interested in the role of the rehabilitation practitioner and their way of working as a critical factor in rehabilitation and whether shifting structures, processes and the way we work with people can optimise outcome. Her recent research has focused on better understanding aspects of person-centred practice and cultures of care, therapeutic relationship, self-management and engagement, and the implications this has for key transdisciplinary rehabilitation processes. Nicola actively contributes to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in rehabilitation at the School of Clinical Sciences at Auckland University of Technology and is a current executive member of the New Zealand Rehabilitation Association.
