Overview

Dr Fleming is an occupational therapist and researcher in the field of brain injury rehabilitation. Her PhD completed in 1996 was on the topic of the development of self-awareness following traumatic brain injury. She has continued to pursue collaborative research on role of metacognitive factors in brain injury rehabilitation. Other research interests include prospective memory assessment and rehabilitation, community integration and the transition from hospital to the community, and psychosocial adjustment and outcomes following acquired brain injury, as well as lifetime care and support for people with complex neurological disability. She is Head of Occupational Therapy at The University of Queensland, and is a Fellow of the Occupational Therapy Australia Research Academy, a Fellow of the Australasian Society for the Study of Brain Impairment, and C-Editor of Brain Impairment.

Research Impacts

Dr Fleming is the developer of the Self-Awareness of Deficits Interview which is a widely used assessment in brain injury rehabilitation and research around the world. Her work on the transition from hospital to home after brain injury helped inform the development of the Acquired Brain Injury Transitional Rehabilitation Service established in Queensland in 2016, and she is a member of the research team evaluating the impact of this new service.
