We are delighted to announce that Jacqueline Thompson, Research Physiotherapist at the Centre for Rehabilitation Research in Oxford (RRIO), was awarded the "Best Research Project" at the Association of Orthopaedic Chartered Physiotherapists (AOCP) Annual Conference held at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Middlesex, last November.

The topic for the AOCP Autumn 2015 meeting was "Evidence based update on orthopaedic surgery and rehabilitation", with the main focus being the current state of England's orthopaedic surgical provision and rehabilitation services with suggested changes that can be made to improve pathways of care, patient experience, and outcomes with significant cost savings. The programme included talks by a number of expert renowned speakers, in trauma, orthopaedics and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions.

Speaking of the award (a cut glass trophy and £400), Jacqueline commented: "It was a surprise and I was delighted to win an award. Winning this award was a fantastic experience. It has boosted my confidence of engaging in musculoskeletal research and especially on the project addressing prognostic indicators of ankle sprain. I cannot thank the AOCP enough for this opportunity."
