MSK Lab at Imperial College Setting Up Patient Group
« on: June 27, 2016, 01:19:00 PM »
The Imperial College MSk Lab, led by Prof Justin Cobb, is setting up a patient group to involve people like you in the planning and delivery of our research.  The MSk Lab is one of the world’s leading musculoskeletal research labs where we work to create better results for patients by developing enhanced technology, techniques and strategies for orthopaedic and rehabilitation procedures.  To help us improve further, we’d like to involve you in the research planning process and give you access to those leading researchers. 

We plan to hold regular meetings (roughly once a quarter). 

In the first meeting, 20th July from 1100 to 1400, a group of clinicians, scientists and engineers from the lab  will present our work and discuss why patient involvement is so important to our research.  We would like to ask you about your experience of surgery, what symptoms are most important to you and what aspects of our research you find most interesting.

We will provide lunch and refreshments and you will get the chance to have a tour of the MSk Lab to see some of our state of the art research in action.

The meeting will take place at the MSk Lab on 7th Floor of the Lab Block, Charing Cross Hospital, W6 8RP.
 If you are interested in being involved, please contact Matthew Ryan on matthew.ryan@imperial.ac.uk

Thanks for this information Pat, I have contacted Matt to offer my services (and been made very welcome) - any other UK hippies going to be there? Would be nice to meet forumites in the flesh!
