Journal Article
Curran, T., Jones, M., Ferguson, S., Reed, M., Lawrence, A., Cull, N., & Stabb, M. (2021). Disabled young people's hopes and dreams in a rapidly changing society: A co-production peer research study. Disability and Society, 36(4), 561-578. https://doi.org/10.1080/09687599.2020.1755234

The idea that disabled young people should be at the centre of decision making about their future is promoted in policy, practice and research, yet this often translates into a narrow agenda on transitions through service and benefits systems. In thi... Read More about Disabled young people's hopes and dreams in a rapidly changing society: A co-production peer research study.

Focus groups for co-design of robotic trousers for improving mobility in older people (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Turton, A., Manns, S., Hampshire, L., O'Conner, R., Helps, T., Rossiter, J., & Mure, B. (2017, June). Focus groups for co-design of robotic trousers for improving mobility in older people. Paper presented at Royal College of occupational Therapists Conference 2017

Research purpose and aims By 2039 more than one in twelve of the population is projected to be aged 80 or over, bringing increased prevalence of immobility and reduced quality of life (ONS, 2015).

Preparing for home: A before-and-after study to investigate the effects of a neonatal discharge package aimed at increasing parental knowledge, understanding and confidence in caring for their preterm infant before and after discharge from hospital (2016)
Report
Ingram, J., Blair, P., Powell, J., Manns, S., Burden, H., Pontin, D., …Fleming, P. (2016). Preparing for home: A before-and-after study to investigate the effects of a neonatal discharge package aimed at increasing parental knowledge, understanding and confidence in caring for their preterm infant before and after discharge from hospital

Background Improved survival and shorter length of stay (LOS) for preterm infants, together with poorly organised discharge planning in some neonatal units, leaves many parents ill prepared to take their babies home, with increased use of out-of-hou...
