University of Lincoln – Help Required

The University of Lincoln are looking to the community for assistance with setting up several courses for students as outlined below:

People who have experience of living with or recovering from skin or tissue damage who can share their experiences with students. They are looking for a range of experiences, from skin ulcers, pressure sores or lymphedema. They hope you will share how these conditions can impact on your social lives and personal life choices. Case studies will be anonymised as they hear your story and work these into case studies for students to formulate a holistic and person-centred clinical management plan. Your input is valued and as such they will reimburse you for your time. Contact details at the end.

People who can talk to students about their experiences of being elderly and the impact that this can have on medical needs and the various medications that can be prescribed. Students will want to take a medical review considering all of the medications being taken. Two dates are available: Friday 22nd February or Friday 16th February 10 am – 1pm. Reimbursements and car parking will be provided. Contact details at the end.

People living with Diabetes who would be happy to give a short talk to some Pharmacy students about their experience. Students will be keen to hear about the diagnosis, what treatment plans were put in place and some information about your on-going care. Two dates are available as follows: Tuesday 17th April 2pm – 5pm or Thursday 19th April 10am – 2pm. Reimbursements and car parking will be provided. Contact details at the end.

People living with neurological conditions (any conditions both common and rare e.g. Charcot Marie Tooth Syndrome, migraine, epilepsy) includes an online survey for their experiences:

  • Carers for people living with neurological conditions
  • Voluntary Sector/ Statutory organisations
  • Medical/ Allied Health Professionals
