An opportunity to share your experiences of physiotherapy for MSK to help develop better solutions.
Biomedical engineering students in their 4th year or at the Master’s level are pretty expert at the engineering but they also need to meet the people who their engineering projects will be good for. The purpose of this innovation course is that they invent something new which will improve care for many people. Innovations that will useful and usable. They have to hear about experiences from people who have felt or seen problems first hand as this produces the most powerful and useful insights.
This workshop aims to find out about problems that you have experienced or seen happen that cause pain, distress or extreme discomfort - with care, devices and equipment in clinics or in the home for people who have been referred for physiotherapy for Musculoskeletal conditions.
We want to involve people who have been prescribed or referred for physiotherapy for Musculoskeletal conditions. This can be as prehab – before or instead of surgery – or rehab – after interventions.
Anyone with a keen interest or indirect experience in this is also welcome to come along.
The day will begin with a short introduction and then the group will be split into smaller interview groups. Between 10:15 and 11:45 there will be conversation style interviews by student researcher teams. This will either be 2 longer or 3 shorter interviews with short breaks in-between. This will be followed by a light lunch.
The workshop will take place on Monday 18th February, 10am-1pm at Newcastle University Business School.
You will receive a gift voucher for taking part and lunch will be provided.
