Guest lecturer Community Nursing.
Dr Ottmann's research focuses primarily on understanding the environmental factors that shape people's resilience in community care, the barriers and enablers of continuity of care in the community and people's needs and preferences for new community care models in the light of significant demographic shifts. He is particularly interested in investigating older people's ability to shape the care they are receiving and the way older people can be enabled to maintain their autonomy and independence. Dr Ottmann is also interested in the opportunity structures and environmental factors that build the resilience of people who receive social care.
