Dr Hilary Gunn

University of Plymouth

Hilary originally trained in Birmingham and now works as an Associate Professor in Physiotherapy at the University of Plymouth. Her clinical career focussed on working with adults with neurological problems (many of whom had MS) in a variety of settings. Her last post combined this role with a caseload of older people�s rehabilitation- where she developed something of an obsession with falls management and the lack of evidence to inform falls prevention practice in neurorehabilitation.
On moving into an academic role at the University of Plymouth she completed her PhD which had the original (somewhat na�ve) aim of finding out �why people with MS fall and what we can do about it?� She has a developing research portfolio relating to neurorehabilitation and falls management and has undertaken an NIHR funded initial evaluation of an MS falls programme designed in collaboration with MS service users, clinicians and national/ international researchers.

Falls in neurological conditions- necessary evil or rehab opportunity?

Falls in neurological conditions- necessary evil or rehab opportunity?
Disorders of movement and balance in neurological conditions lead to significant issues, one of which is accidental falls. This talk will summarise the risk factors, circumstances and consequences of falls in neurological conditions, highlighting condition specific issues and wider considerations for practice. The opportunities for rehabilitation will be discussed, evaluating if, how and when existing falls prevention evidence can be applied in neurorehabilitation.
