Project Description

The project will utilised evidence from my existing research around management and coping of neurological illness and use this information to design an intervention for neurological departments. The intervention will be a cost effective behaviour intervention using my most recent understanding and developments in the importance of narrative and social support based interventions.

The main project will be an RCT across the duration of the PhD that looks to provide an alternative service for individuals with a neurological condition. This can be either Parkinson’s, Stroke or Multiple Sclerosis.

A qualitative study examining individuals before, during and after intervention will be run alongside this
A review based study around short psycho-behavioural interventions will lead this work

Funding Notes

Students must be self-funded and a bench fee of £3k a year will be required to support training and the main trial.
