Dr Evans currently holds an NIHR Clinician Scientist Fellowship to investigate how to improve health-related outcomes for adults with chronic breathlessness using a symptom-based approach. Her areas of expertise include exercise physiology, training and rehabilitation for people with long term cardiorespiratory conditions.
There are many unknowns around the long-term recovery of COVID-19 survivors. Dr Evans is using a holistic approach to quickly identify the symptoms and problems people experience after COVID-19 in the short, medium and long term. She is seeking to understand the underlying pathology and develop and test interventions to improve outcomes.
Embedding this ongoing research in clinical care and enabling clinicians and researchers to continue working together closely will improve outcomes for the current and future waves of patients worldwide.
