Biography

Dr Pip Logan obtained her first degree, an Occupational Therapy BSc, in 1985 from the University of Derby. She then undertook her MPhil at the University of Nottingham in 1994, which was a community-based randomised controlled trial of occupational therapy for stroke patients. In 2004 she gained her PhD at the University of Nottingham, a randomised controlled trial evaluating an outdoor mobility intervention for stroke patients. She has received two NIHR fellowships, and is the Chief Investigator for a £1.8 million National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) HTA research grant which is exploring falls in care homes. She also works clinically for Nottingham City Care Partnership (NHS) in the community rehabilitation team and in the Acute Hospital for the Health Care of the Elderly Directorate

Current Research

Dr Logan is an occupational therapist whose research is mainly concerned with health services rehabilitation, with particular emphasis on the community. She is an expert in leading randomised controlled trials of rehabilitation services and individual techniques. For example, she has recently completed a study that compared a new outdoor mobility intervention for people with stroke against the routine therapy. The results are used clinically and have been incorporated in stroke clinical guidelines. This type of research has a direct impact on what therapists provide for patients each day.

Community rehabilitation is a complex intervention that involves professionals from Health Care, Social Care, voluntary groups and, most importantly, carers. Accordingly, she includes service users in her research designs, steering groups and dissemination plans.

She also maintains a clinical role within Nottingham CityCare Partnership providing rehabilitation for adults within the community.
