The March issue of Frontline is now available.
This month’s cover feature shines a spotlight on the health inequalities faced by people with learning disabilities - highlighting how they not only experience poorer health outcomes than the general population, but are also at least four times more likely to die from Covid-19.
We speak to specialist physiotherapists who share insights about their work with people with learning disabilities, and offer advice about how other physiotherapy staff can help to break down the barriers that prevent these patients from having equal access to care.
Also in this issue, we take a look at a pioneering project that has provided a life-changing enhanced rehab programme to major trauma patients who were injured in the 2017 Manchester arena bombing.
We also profile physiotherapist, and matron for quality at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Lakshman Thuraisingham, who speaks about the ways physiotherapy staff can influence change, enhance patient care and step outside their traditional roles.
Other features include a guide to wellness in the workplace, advice about your rights if you are experiencing sex discrimination at work and advice about how to evidence your impact and advance your practice.
