- About Deakin
Cadeyrn Gaskin is a Senior Research Fellow within the Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing Research, working predominantly with the Social Inclusion, Diversity and Equity group. Although passionate about social inclusion and equity issues in their broadest sense, his primary focus is on using research to foster opportunities for disabled people to engage meaningfully in wider society.
Cadeyrn has over a decade’s experience in the health sector. In the disability area, for example, his work has contributed to understandings of why adults with cerebral palsy engage in, or avoid, physical activity. In the mental health field, his work is contributing to the shaping of health services such that they are more responsive to the needs of consumers.
His work is published in leading journals, such as Disability & Society and the British Journal of Psychiatry. He contributes to the training and continued education of current and future healthcare practitioners through delivering guest lectures and providing content for books, such as Clinical exercise: A case-based approach (Elsevier, 2011). Cadeyrn is also a Chief Investigator on an Australian Research Council Linkage grant seeking to investigate the efficacy of a referral and physical activity program for survivors of prostate cancer.
