On 11-12 November 6 members of the Physiotherapy Department presented their research and service improvement and evaluation work at the European Region of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy Congress in Liverpool. The team were: Jenny Adamson, Kerry Alexander, Patricia Costello, Becki Dixon, Nathalie Gibbins and Jasmine Luckett all pictured below. These studies represent the hard work by this group during rotations on the DME physiotherapy team. Their presentations were very popular and helped spread the word about the innovative patient care and research being done at CUH. The studies presented are part of a body of work being led by Peter Hartley and Dr Roman Romero-Ortuno on functional change and functional trajectories of older people during hospitalisation. These studies are focusing on ways to prevent loss of physical function in hospitalised older people, and to improve patient outcomes.
