Personal profile

Academic Background

David is a paediatric physiotherapist working clinically at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, part of Cambridge Univeristy Hospitals, England. He specialises in acquired brain injury, neurorehabilitation & family-centred care. David is interested in assessing and monitoring functional change amongst children and young people following acquired brain injury and tracking progress over time. David is also very interested in the role of parents and the family following brain injury, and optimising support for those affected.

In July 2021, David started his National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funded PhD at the University of East Anglia. The PhD research focuses on paediatric traumatic brain injury with the aim of developing a digital health intervention (rehabilitation app) to support parents of children and young people with traumatic brain injury to deliver physiotherapy. Studies include one-to-one interviews with parents and carers to explore their experiences of, and needs for, delivering physiotherapy. Physiotherapy focus groups explore the experiences of physiotherapists that support children, young people and families affected by traumatic brain injury. Finally, the intervention itself will be co-designed with key stakeholders.
