Breanne Kunstler—Positively changing behaviour


Breanne Kunstler—Positively changing behaviour


Clare Pickering chats with Dr Breanne Kunstler APAM about her 2016 PRF Tagged Grant and the success of behaviour change techniques in empowering patients to be physically active.

PRF Grant


Brea is an APA titled research physiotherapist specialising in running injuries and coaching. The PRF partly funded her PhD that identified the strategies physiotherapists use to encourage clients to be physically active, as well as their barriers to having conversations with clients about their physical activity levels. Brea is a research fellow at BehaviourWorks Australia and has recently completed a secondment with the National COVID19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce where she contributed to the development of living guidelines specific to the management of people with COVID19.
