Megan Ross is a postdoctoral fellow at RECOVER Injury Research Centre, The University of Queensland. She is part of a research team, led by Professor Trevor Russell, which focuses on developing more effective and efficient health services supported by technology innovation. Megan’s current research areas of interest include exploring consumer perspectives of the telerehabilitation service delivery model, the impact of rapid transitions to telerehabilitation in the clinical education environment and the role of physical activity in the transition to chronic pain in people who have motor vehicle accident related trauma.

Megan is a physiotherapist and early career researcher who completed her PhD in the Human Neuroscience Unit/Sports Injury and Rehabilitation and Prevention for Health research groups in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Queensland. Her PhD explored the clinical presentation of tibialis posterior tendinopathy and was the first to investigate the diagnostic utility of common clinical tests for tibialis posterior tendinopathy and consider the condition beyond local impairments at the foot and ankle by taking a biopsychosocial approach. In addition to her current research areas of interest at RECOVER, Megan is interested in the experience of LGBT+ and other vulnerable populations, including veterans, accessing and utilising health care. Dr Ross has received a Physiotherapy Research Foundation grant (2019) to develop an online, educational resource for physiotherapists with the aim of improving the delivery of diverse and inclusive physiotherapy care for individuals who identify as LGBT+. Megan has a broad range of research skills that span both quantitative and qualitative methods, including systematic reviews, cross-sectional and longitudinal study designs and data analysis, interviews and focus group discussions and thematic analysis.
