Evaluating and improving care
The ultimate goal of our research is to improve patient care. We have conducted several projects directly relating to evaluating and improving care, both in palliative care and in rehabilitation.
- Developing and evaluating a palliative care service for people severely affected by MS
- Evaluation of palliative day care
- Evaluation of district nursing
- Development and evaluation of the 90-minute group
In rehabilitation, evaluations have been conducted to assess the benefits of intervention in groups of patients with severe complex disability, who would be predicted to have poor outcomes in terms of functional recovery.
- Integrated Care Pathway development
- Development of tools to assess function in the spastic upper limb
- Evaluation of after care for patients with complex disabilities following discharge from a regional rehabilitation service
- A retrospective meta-analysis of pooled trial data to assess functional benefits from botulinum toxin in the management of upper limb spasticity
