bridges story for rehab lewisham

Fiona Jones has successfully won a South London Higher Education Innovation award as part of her role with Bridges self-management.

Bridges vision is to enable people living with long-term neurological conditions to take control of their rehabilitation and daily lives.

This project aims to evaluate the impact of upskilling the community rehabilitation and enablement workforce in Lewisham to deliver self-management support as part of their health and social care delivery to people with long term neurological conditions (LTNCs).

The project builds on the Bridges stroke self-management programme shown to change attitudes, beliefs and practice amongst the workforce and improve confidence and functional capacity of patients using the programme. A patient held workbook and staff training resources will be modified from the existing Bridges stroke SMP and co-produced by people with LTNCs from the local population in Lewisham together with the Bridges advisory group.
