Staff Profile

Sharon Blake

PenCRU Associate Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCRU, a childhood disability research unit within Child Health in January 2014. Prior to this I have worked with children, families and professionals across children services, including fostering, youth offending and early years. PenCRU has a Family Faculty who advise and work in partnership with the research team to carry out research which is useful and relevant to them. I am currently working on a systematic review with staff from PenCLAHRC looking at the evidence for whole body sleep positioning systems prescribed for children with cerebral palsy. This Cochrane review will hopefully be completed and published by the end of 2014.
