Find out more about Dr. Caroline Belchamber in her biography
I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1993 and gained experience in a variety of settings including NHS, private, voluntary, and higher education sectors. I specialised initially in respiratory and then in palliative, supportive and end of life care.
My research interests and areas of expertise include the non-pharmacological approach to breathlessness and palliative rehabilitation, as well as human rights in end-of-life care, with work published in several peer-reviewed journals and presentations at key conferences.
More recently I have focused on COVID-19 recovery and rehabilitation working with Health Education England (HEE) to develop Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) e-learning resources for COVID-19 on the e-Learning for Health platform (e-LfH), as well as writing a chapter on COVID-19, Long-term conditions and supportive, palliative and end of life care in the 5th edition of Payne’s Handbook of Relaxation Techniques – a practical guide for healthcare professionals and students. I am also a peer reviewer for 3 key palliative, supportive and end of life journals and physiotherapy journal with verified reviews logged through Publons.
