2.1. The Hip: Differential diagnosis of soft tissue pathologies about the hip, and their management; with particular reference to gluteal tendinopathy/trochanteric bursitis - Paul Smith and Angela Fearon

Hip pain is one of the most common presentations to rehabilitation physicians. While diagnosing end stage hip osteoarthritis is not difficult, for all other forms of "hip pain" it can be difficult to ascertain the underlying cause. Is it lumbar spine or SIJ referral? Is it GTPS? Deep gluteal syndrome? Piriformis syndrome? or femoral ischial impingement?

What clinical tests will provide the most valuable likelihood ratios? Does imaging help with this diagnostic challenge? And, what is the evidence based approach to treatment?

Come and join us for a lively discussion on where the science stands now, and how you can use it in practice.

2.2. A workshop on encouraging and measuring impact from stroke & neurological rehabilitation research & services - Michael Nilsson, Director HMRI and
Andrew Searles, Associate Director HMRI, Health Economist

Who should attend?
Clinicians, clinician-researchers, researchers interested in improving the impact from stroke rehabilitation and neurological rehabilitation research.

Why attend?
Funders of both health and medical research and health services are increasingly looking to understand the impact from investments into research and healthcare. 

“Impact” is more than academic achievement, it must include the consequences generated for patients andthe community, as well as economic consequences.

This one-hour workshop is tailored to stroke and neuro-rehabilitation clinicians and researchers. Attend to better understand how you can plan, measure and report impact from your own research / service. 

What to Expect?
A short overview of impact assessment. Then, using a purpose designed impact assessment tool developed at HMRI, attendees will work through a real-world case study based on emerging stroke rehabilitation research.  

A strategic plan will be developed to conceptualise the path to impact, as well as identifying data that can help provide evidence that impact has been generated.

Skills Acquired
Acquire a better understanding of research impact, including how to plan for it and how to start measuring it.
