Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow [2016-2019]
Funded by the National Institute for Health Research I am undertaking a three year Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship. My research study: A randomised controlled feasibility study to investigate the effects of a functional standing frame programme versus usual physiotherapy in people with severe sub-acute stroke on function, quality of life and neuromuscular impairment. I am also undertaking a systematic view: The effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions to treat orthostatic hypotension in the elderly and people with a neurological condition.
I continue to work clinically, working across the whole of the stroke pathway. Currently I am working in the community working with people with complex and long-term conditions such as stroke, MS and Parkinson's disease. Currently I am training to become an non-medical prescriber which will enable me to meet both the physical and pharmacological needs of patients.
