Adam Winterton

I graduated with a BSc (HONS) Physiotherapy from Coventry University in 2003. I then worked clinically at the Leicester Royal Infirmary National Health Service (NHS) Trust from 2003 as a Junior (AfC Band 5) physiotherapist before successfully gaining a Senior II (AfC Band 6) rotational neurological specialist physiotherapy post in 2005 at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. The specialist post saw me gain invaluable experiences in:

• Acute Medical Rehabilitation, Neurology and Stroke

• High Dependency care including acute Brain Injury Unit, Intensive Care Unit and complex respiratory

• Outpatients including neurological, specialist muscular dystrophy and musculoskeletal clients

• Rehabilitation both acute, community, specialist younger adult neurological and domiciliary based

• Specialist care including bariatric, oncology, haematology, Bone Marrow Unit and infectious diseases

Following my passion for teaching I was appointed as a Teaching Fellow in Physiotherapy at Keele University in September 2012 and continue to hold this post. My main responsibilities include being the School International Director (SID) appointed to look after all international recruitment and marketing; Module leader for a variety of undergraduate, postgraduate and foundation year modules as well as being the current Chair of the Learning Technology Group (LTG) with the School of Health and Rehabilitation.

In 2014, I completed a PG Certificate in Learning and Teaching at Keele University as well as an MSc in Neurological Physiotherapy at Coventry University. My primary research conducted to date is into predicting rehabilitation potential in neurological patients. My future research aims are to further explore technology in physiotherapy education and predictive modelling for neurological patients. I hope to commence a PhD in 2016/17 alongside my teaching commitments.

I have been fortunate enough to have attended national and international conferences to present both posters and deliver platform presentations on my research and other projects including the World Confederation of Physical therapy (WCPT) conference in Singapore in May 2015 and the Physiotherapy Research Society (PRS) conference in Leicester in April 2015.

My main areas of interest are neurological physiotherapy, rehabilitation and clinical education. I am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), a fellow of the Higher Education Authority (HEA) and a registered physiotherapist with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) as well as being an Accredited Clinical Educator (ACE) with the CSP.

My areas of research interest include the use of technology in physiotherapy education and predictive modelling for neurological patients.

I have presented at a variety of national and international events including the World Confederation of Physical Therapy (WCPT) congress, the Keele University Teaching Symposium and the Physiotherapy Research Society (PRS) Annual Conference.

My specialist teaching areas include neurological rehabilitation but I also contribute to musculoskeletal and cardio-vascular respiratory teaching. I am also module leader for the Health Foundation Year module 'Active Anatomy' as well as the Postgraduate module 'Concepts of Neurological Rehabilitation'.
