Dennis’ clinical work has focused on brain injury rehabilitation with children and adults with complex motor, cognitive, and communication impairments, many of whom required assistive technology for mobility and cognitive rehabilitation. Dennis has extensive volunteer experience, sitting on the boards of Brain Injury Canada and the Brain Injury Association of Windsor / Essex County. Dennis has contributed to the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation’s publications on brain injury and concussion guidelines.
While a member of the PCHI Lab, Dennis will be researching the development and evaluation of e-health technologies. Specifically, evaluating the implementation of digital health solutions for people with chronic conditions, mainly the design, features, & components of patient portals and clinical information systems that may lead to improved effectiveness and engagement with patients/caregivers with neurological conditions with the potential to improve the outcomes and course of rehabilitation with this population.
