Staff Profile

Dr Vicki Goodwin

Senior Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I am a physiotherapist, specialising in the care of older people and community rehabilitation, in particular fall prevention and the management of people with Parkinson’s. I have worked clinically in the South Devon area since 1995 and continue to have a clinical role with Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care Trust. I have been working for PenCLAHRC since January 2010 on several projects. This work has resulted in a number of publications and grant applications. I am currently the project lead for ‘Patient-initiated Clinics (PIC)’ which comprises a number of work streams. I am part of the Clinical Decision Making working group and am a tutor on CDM workshops for clinicians and undergraduate medical students.
