Congratulations to Professor Linda Denehy and Physiotherapy PhD candidate Ianthe Boden

The Department of Physiotherapy is delighted to share with you a new publication led by PhD student Ianthe Boden, with Professor Linda Denehy as senior author, in collaboration with Lizzie Skinner, Laura Browning, Julie Reeve, Lesley Anderson, Cat Hill, Iain Robertson and David Story.

The paper titled "Preoperative physiotherapy for the prevention of respiratory complications after upper abdominal surgery: pragmatic, double blinded, multicentre randomised controlled trial" was published in the BMJ last week and has received great attention on social media already.

This paper is an important contribution to the profession and it's fabulous to see effective physiotherapy interventions highlighted in one of the top general medical journals.
