adam galloway
Adam is a Clinical Academic Physiotherapist in Children’s Orthopaedics. He is currently completing his HEE/NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (CDRF) (now DCAF) on a rare hip disease in children called Perthes’ Disease. He has a clinical base at Leeds Children’s Hospital as part of the Children’s Physiotherapy team and an academic base at Chapel Allerton Hospital at Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine, University of Leeds. During this PhD Adam has developed a digital self-management intervention for the non-surgical treatment of Perthes’ Disease which is about to be tested in this patient population. Children with Perthes’ Disease and their families will use this app to manage their condition and provide feedback on how it works in an attempt to understand how best to optimise the non-surgical treatment of Perthes’ Disease. As well as this, Adam has used the PhD to develop the skills necessary to conduct high-quality, research and progress as a clinical academic leader. Adam is also part of the team that helps to organise events through the Leeds Children’s Research Forum.
