University of Lincoln/NHS Health Research Forum

The latest Research Forum took place today on 7th November in the Board Room in Bridge House. The Research Forum takes place three times a year and is an opportunity for colleagues to present studies conducted in Lincolnshire or undertaken by the county’s researchers. The meeting  began with a light lunch and included NHS staff, university staff and students, and colleagues interested in health and social care research.

The presentations were:
• Programs to promote physical activity among children and adolescents: A case study of the Team Bath Tribe
Project presented by Dr Harriet Koorts, LCHS NHS Trust.
• An exploration of how a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) approach can support decision making in advanced
heart failure; an action research methodology presented by Rachel Gavin, Heart Failure Complex Case Manager, LCHS
NHS Trust.
• Achieving change in older people’s services: Effective prevention?’ presented by Karen Windle, Reader in Health, CaHRU, University of Lincoln.

The three studies were excellently presented and well received by attendees. There were some excellent questions generated and ably responded to by our speakers.
