Community interventions  

In the Rehabilitation Research Group, our research helps inform best practice for improving rehabilitation in the community, while taking into account the financial implications of doing so. Ultimately we aim to improve patients’ quality of life once they leave hospital.  

Our research in this field straddles much of the work carried out in our other themes. It includes helping patients recover after stroke, supporting people with multiple sclerosis, exploring how we can reduce the risk of falls, and looking at how we can help elderly people recover from knee replacements and similar operations. 

Research that makes an impact

Can occupational therapists help reduce falls among high-risk older people? 

This will be a cohort randomised controlled trial recruiting patients at high risk of falls from two existing NIHR trial cohorts.
