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.

Making sense of Systematic reviews in neurorehabilitation

Making sense of Systematic reviews in neurorehabilitation
Systematic reviews are a valuable source of evidence for busy practitioners. However, not all are created equal, and evaluating the practical implications of systematic review findings can be challenging. This session will explore systematic reviews in physiotherapy-related neurorehabilitation. It aims to give a practical guide to common review types and to stimulate you to reflect upon the implications that review findings may have for your clinical practice.
