Dr Sue Hunter Delivers Physiotherapy Workshops In New Zealand
Dr Sue Hunter from the School of Health and Rehabilitation has recently returned from New Zealand having been invited to deliver workshops based on her research on the use of somatosensory stimulation to enhance restoration of function in the arm and hand following stroke.
Workshops were delivered at the St John of God Hospital in Christchurch and in the School of Physiotherapy at Otago University in Dunedin to qualified physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapy students and lecturers. As a result of this visit, further collaborative research is being developed with colleagues at Otago University, and international placement and employment opportunities for Keele physiotherapy students and new graduates are being explored.
