Professor Krska and Dr Sarah Corlett win the best conference abstract award in London!
Senior lecturer and her team are awarded Hugh Mcgavock bursary
Professor Janet Krska and Dr Sarah Corlett, with two PhD students from the CPP Research Group attended the annual Prescribing and Research in Medicines Management conference in London on January 26th. Dr Corlett presented some of the work her team have been doing, funded by the Stroke Association, which sought to understand why younger stroke survivors are less likely to continue taking the essential medicines which prevent them from having another stroke. Michelle Cashin-Cox presented a poster on her work in people with epilepsy, which described their experiences with using medicines.
Professor Krska presented the results from studies done by a previous PhD student, Barbra Katusiime and last year’s SRP students which explored factors affecting perceptions of medicines burden in patients using long-term medicines. For this work, the team, which also included Sarah, was awarded the Hugh McGavock bursary of £200, a prize awarded annually for the best conference abstract.
