Dr Haslam has a special interest in chronic pain that is experienced by people with stroke and other neurological conditions.

He is also involved in stroke rehabilitation studies aiming to tailor upper limb rehabilitation to the individual, based on clinical assessment findings and current evidence, and developing clinician training programs to best achieve this.
