11 December 2020

Juliet Butler, Team Lead Physiotherapist in Kingston Hospital’s care of the elderly wards, recently won the Eva Huggins prize for ‘Best Nurse/AHP Poster’ at the British Geriatrics Society’s autumn conference.

Juliet’s poster features her work with the multi-disciplinary team to help prevent ‘PJ Paralysis’ on Derwent Ward, a project which was established in December 2018 and focuses on getting patients out of bed, wherever possible, to reduce the risk of deconditioning.
