FEATURED RESEARCH

With the involvement of children with cerebral palsy, their parents and health professionals, researchers developed an international agreed set of most important lower limb orthopaedic surgical outcomes and measurement instruments (core outcome domains and measurements set) which all researchers can used in future studies.

In October 2017, I commenced my DPhil degree at the University of Oxford to pursue my interests in musculoskeletal science. My wider interests include gait-related deformity in children with CP. The focus of my project is developing a core outcome sets for lower limb orthopaedic surgery for ambulant children with Cerebral Palsy (CP).  We believe that studies evaluating orthopaedic surgical interventions have reported many different outcomes resulting in significant outcome reporting bias and an inability to synthesise results across studies. The development and use of core outcome sets would help to address these issues.

I have previously graduated from King Faisal University, Saudi Arabia, obtaining a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Physiotherapy (2010) and a Master of Science (MSc) in Paediatric physiotherapy at University College London (2016).
