10 October: The Lived Experience of Impaired Sensation in the feet related to Multiple Sclerosis: A Descriptive Phenomenological Study
- Speaker: Claire Cook, Community Neurological Physiotherapist, Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust
Claire Cook qualified in Physiotherapy from the University of Wales College of Medicine in 2003 and after basic rotations quickly became interested in the field of neurology. She works as community based neurological physiotherapist in Chichester, West Sussex, and whilst her caseload includes a broad spectrum of neurological disorders her special interest is Multiple Sclerosis. She completed an NIHR/HEE masters in clinical research at Brighton University in early 2018 having qualitatively explored impaired sensation in the feet related to Multiple Sclerosis. A novice researcher, Claire currently has NIHR internship funding to develop a PhD application building upon this work.
