Hello! It has been quite a while since I last uploaded a blog post. In this post I will update you on what’s been happening over the last few months and the new goings on with the DREX app. Now that October has rolled around the University has once again become a hub of activity with the return of hundreds of students. However for the DREX project, work never stopped. We have been constantly active over the summer taking part in a number of different engagements. These have mainly taken the form of informational talks at a number of different places including NHS trusts, schools and stroke and brain injury charities.
One of the best ways to inform people about DREX training and the positive impact stroke and brain injury survivors have experienced using our training is to directly engage with stroke and brain injury survivors or healthcare professionals. The DREX team attended the County Durham and Darlington Research and Innovation Day in May of this year. This was a really great event with a number of exciting and interesting research projects presented, all of which will and have had a positive effect on the lives of patients with a whole host of varying conditions. It was great to be a part of this event and engaging with other researchers and interested healthcare professionals. We were able to host a stall at this event which was an excellent way to discuss our project with a whole host of individuals from varying disciplines.
The DREX team has also presented at the inaugural Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing Early Stage Research Conference. This event took place in the Wolfson Research Institute based in Stockton-On-Tees. The event played host to a number of talks from early career researchers from a wide range of varying research backgrounds. This event gave the DREX team the opportunity to present our research to colleagues and professionals who may have previously not been aware of our research. This event has also led to future plans for collaboration with colleagues from different departments, applying our DREX training to other fields.
A final development from the DREX team is that we have recently launched a Facebook page for our training. We will be using this page to upload videos and post updates regarding any developments occurring on the DREX project. If you would like to view the page then you can do so by following this link:- https://www.facebook.com/DREXDurham1
It would be a great help if you could like the Facebook page and stay tuned for updates.
As always there are a number of ways to get in touch with us. For further information, to request a talk or demonstration, or to talk to us about anything then select from one of the options below.
