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 is entitled: A randomised controlled feasibility trial 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 in Cornwall. This involves working in acute, sub-acute and community settings. In April 2017 I qualified as an Independent Prescriber following an intensive six months training course with University of the West of England. This valuable training enables me to provide holistic care to my patients by assessing and managing both their physical and pharmacological needs.
