Current research: 

The overarching goal of Prof. Janaudis-Ferreira's research program is to optimize rehabilitation care in individuals with chronic disease to improve physical function, quality of life and morbidity. There are two main patient populations in which she is leading studies in rehabilitation: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and solid organ transplant (SOT) candidates and recipients. Within this main focus, her research program comprises two interrelated themes: 1) Improving uptake of rehabilitation by patients with COPD and 2) developing and evaluating new rehabilitation and physical activity interventions for SOT candidates and recipients.

Prof. Janaudis-Ferreira is a co-founder of the Canadian Network for Rehabilitation and Exercise for Solid Organ Transplant Optimal Recovery (https://canrestore.wordpress.com)
