Mrs Karen Jones
I have been a lecturer at Cardiff University, Physiotherapy department since July 2004. Prior to this I worked as a Physiotherapist in the National Health Service specialising in the area of adult neurological rehabilitation.
In the realm of Learning and Teaching I have various organisational responsibilities including being module leader at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and a manual handling trainer/ co-ordinator (IOSH certified). In 2006 I was part of a team from the Physiotherapy dept which successfully revalidated a new course, implemented in September 2007. My particular teaching interests are physiology, neurology and neural plasticity which I teach on undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Since 2008 I have also contributed to MACP certified masters module working across specialities.
In line with my research interests I am also a member of the Physiotherapy Working group for the European Huntington’s Disease Network (EHDN).
