Vocational rehabilitation supporting a return to work — lessons from stroke

Speaker: Dr Kate Radford, Associate Professor in Rehabilitation Research, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, University of Nottingham  

About the speaker: Kate Radford qualified as an occupational therapist in 1990, working predominantly in neurological rehabilitation. Her PhD involved developing and validating tests to predict driving safety in people with long-term neurological conditions, including traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Following clinical work in a community neurological rehabilitation team in 2003, she became interested in vocational rehabilitation: this is the primary focus of her research.

Currently funded projects include trials:

  • To determine the feasibility of measuring the effects and cost-effectiveness of early intervention to prevent job loss in people with traumatic brain injury, stroke and cancer.
  • To develop peer coaching interventions to facilitate participation in people with acquired brain injury.
