Biography

I graduated from Nottingham University in 2003 with a Physiotherapy BSc(Hons) degree and went on to complete a Physiotherapy MSc in 2012. I was awarded a PhD from Keele in 2016 for work investigating attitudes, beliefs and physical activity in older adults with knee pain.


Clinically, I now work in Primary Care delivering core treatment interventions for people with Osteoarthritis. My previous clinical roles have involved the care of adults with musculoskeletal pain in out-patient and orthopaedic in-patient settings as well as interdisciplinary work delivering functional restoration and pain management programmes.

Research and scholarship

My primary research interest is in the management of lower-limb osteoarthritis using non pharmacological interventions such as exercise and physical activity. I have experience in systematic reviews and in analysing trial, survey and interview data. 


My doctoral thesis investigated attitudes, beliefs and physical activity in older adults with knee pain due to osteoarthritis. Key   sections investigated the safety of long-term physical activity and the relationship between patients’ attitudes and beliefs about exercise and the levels of physical activity that they carry out.

Teaching

I contribute to teaching and learning by helping deliver:

• Research methods sessions to medical students including Randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews, cohort studies and critical appraisal. 

• Clinical reasoning sessions on the Keele STarT Back Management of complex patients with pain course. 

• Osteoarthritis core management training to allied health professionals.

• Academic support in facilitating Critical Appraisal Topic groups in Telford and Shrewsbury.

Further information

I am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, the Health and Care Professions Council, the Osteoarthritis Research International Society and the British Health Professionals in Rheumatology Society.
