Rehabilitation study; can you help?

4th July 2018

Renata Buckova is a Master’s degree student in Occupational Therapy at Brunel University. For her dissertation, she is aiming to identify factors that affect attendance of rehabilitation classes during the period between lower limb amputation and a prosthesis fitting

Rehab study

The purpose of the study is to better understand the reasons why people either do, or do not, attend classes during this rehabilitation stage so that the quality of service provision can be improved.

You are invited to take part if you are:

  • A civilian, lower limb amputee aged 18 years and over
AND

  • Attending, or have attended, pre-prosthetic rehabilitation classes

If you are interested in taking part in this study please read this supporting information first, then you can access the Rehabilitation survey.

NB: The survey is available for completion until Friday, 27 July 2018.

Please note that this is not a Meningitis Now funded project, but we are trying to assist the researcher by making people aware of her study.
