Dr. Elizabeth (Liz) Inness is a physiotherapist by background. Dr. Inness’  work aims to integrate research and clinical knowledge to develop optimal approaches that promote safe, independent mobility and participation in exercise and physical activity along the continuum of stroke recovery. To this end, she is an advocate for research: clinical partnerships and provides leadership to Toronto Rehab – UHN’s Balance, Mobility & Falls Clinic, which was co-developed with Dr. William McIlroy and Dr. Mark Bayley, and a partner with CPSR since inception in 2010.  The Clinic was developed to deliberately integrate clinicians and researchers in a patient care setting, provide a hub for knowledge exchange and a platform to test and adapt new innovations within the context of the practice setting and real-life complex patients, which can then immediately translate to practice.
