The Rehabilitation Research Group and the IHC are pleased to invite you to their January lecture in their monthly lecture series, covering a number of relevant topics by local guest speakers.

January’s lecture will be given by Terry Gorst, a PhD student at Plymouth University and Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist with North Devon Healthcare Trust.

Every four minutes and 48 seconds, someone in the UK experiences a cerebrovascular event (CVE) or stroke. This sudden and often devastating illness is the largest cause of adult disability in the UK and represents a major health problem. Stroke can result in significant impairments of movement, somatosensation, cognitive abilities, swallowing, communication and continence. This presentation will focus on somatosensory dysfunction of the foot, ankle and lower limb following stroke.

Terry Gorst is a part-time PhD student at the University of Plymouth and a specialist neurological physiotherapist with Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

Everybody is welcome to attend, just turn up on the day!
