To advance clinical research in the field of rehabilitation in people with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions by investigating clinically feasible targeted exercise interventions to improve participation. To apply novel methods of instruction into the application of evidence based practice and interpretation of the medical literature; and subsequently to evaluate those methods via research into learning outcomes and educational effectiveness.
