Shared decision-making around analgesia for musculoskeletal pain in primary care consultations
Thesis
Hyde, C. (2016). Shared decision-making around analgesia for musculoskeletal pain in primary care consultations

Background Musculoskeletal (MSK) pain is a major health problem worldwide and in UK primary care. Shared decision-making (SDM) is a process advocated by UK policy directives whereby a general practitioner (GP) and patient share information and the...

Developing a non-invasive method for in vivo monitoring of forearm flexor tendon excursions during rehabilitation following surgical tendon repair
Thesis
Sharma, R. (2016). Developing a non-invasive method for in vivo monitoring of forearm flexor tendon excursions during rehabilitation following surgical tendon repair

Background: An injury to the wrist and hand can impact different anatomical structures. Any damage or cut to the flexor tendons can leave a devastating impact if not treated well and can therefore compromise our daily physical activities. Surgery and...

Measurement of frailty: development of a primary care framework and validation of an electronic Frailty Index
Thesis
Moody, D. K. (2016). Measurement of frailty: development of a primary care framework and validation of an electronic Frailty Index

Frailty measurement in primary care and at transitions of care is needed to enable timely identification of frailty, guide interventions and support proactive, integrated care. However, there is currently no single tool for frailty measurement in the...

Polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane based precursors as linkers for porous materials
Thesis
Smith, G. (2016). Polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane based precursors as linkers for porous materials

Within this thesis, the organic synthesis and characterisation of various polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) based compounds has been explored. The target POSS based compounds studied have been chosen because of their eight functionalised or...

Optimising canine olfactory ensheathing cell therapy using tissue engineering tools
Thesis
Delaney, A. M. (2016). Optimising canine olfactory ensheathing cell therapy using tissue engineering tools

The adult mammalian spinal cord is incapable of significant regeneration following injury. As such, spinal injury is a lifelong debilitating condition which represents a significant burden on healthcare globally. Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) ha...
