Runner up in the UN Graduate School poster competition 2013

On 8th May at the Graduate School Annual Poster Competition, Roshni was awarded a runners-up prize of £75 for her poster entitled “A Survey of Upper Limb Neurological Splinting Practice in the UK“. The Vice Chancellor, Professor Nick Petford, presented her prize.

The aim of Roshni’s study was to determine the current practice of occupational therapist’s (OT’s) that use splinting for upper limb rehabilitation with stroke survivors. To achieve this a survey was sent to all OT’s who belong to the Specialist section for Neurological Practice (SSNP), working with stroke survivors to determine the nature of their practice. Data collected from the group of participants will serve to determine the devices and techniques used for the assessment and treatment process, as well as the nature of the clinical reasoning process and the factors that influence practice within the current health care climate.

Roshni is a Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy and can be contacted at the University of Northampton’s School of Health.
