CLAHRC Fellow 2017
Ingrid trained as a Physiotherapist and has a background in Rehabilitation of Stroke and the Older Adult. She currently holds the post of Lead Physiotherapist on the In-patient Stroke Rehabilitation Unit in Norwich. At the same time she has a secondment to the Eastern Clinical Research Network, one day a week, to work on hosting NIHR Portfolio studies in the Stroke Service – these include FAST-Indicate (a trial of Functional Strength Training in Upper Limb Therapy) and EXTRAS (Extended Trial of Rehabilitation after Stroke). Her interest clinically is in lower limb function but she also has an interest in supporting carers of Stroke Patients and she will use her Fellowship to support further investigation into identifying the needs of Carers and how best to support them.
