About Eric Charlton

Eric is a senior lecturer and joined the team in 1995. He qualified as an occupational therapist in 1986 after studying at the College of Ripon and York St John.

Eric gained a fine art degree in 1980 and later became interested in occupational therapy. After qualifying he worked in psychiatry (acute and elderly) in Shropshire and then as a senior therapist in North Tyneside.

Eric has also worked in elderly rehabilitation in Newcastle where he completed an MA Rehabilitation Management and contributed to a cardiac rehabilitation programme at the Royal Victoria Infirmary.

His academic and research interests centre around the nature of science, and how it can be applied to health care, the use of creative activities with younger adults who are diagnosed with dementia (which is also my clinical role in 2006-07) and developments in cardiac rehabilitation.
