Denise Stewart is an Occupational Therapist trained in Australia at the University of Queensland. Her career started at a major public hospital, providing rehabilitation to people with very serious and chronic illness and injuries.
With the introduction of workplace rehabilitation in the 80’s, Denise moved into the private health sector and helped injured workers return to work. This experience created a passion for workplace injury prevention and the importance of good return to work programs.
This same concern for a person’s recovery and the importance of returning to work was applied to her work with women after breast cancer. For 25 years, Denise has been a leader in developing improved rehabilitation services for this special client group.
Empowering people to take control of their health and wellbeing has been the driving force for her latest work in developing educational resources for clients including a Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Youtube Channel. Knowledge is shared about common physical issues experienced by women after breast cancer.
