Creative Movement, Handling, Mobility Osteoporosis Stakeholders\' Workshop


Queen Margaret University 31stJuly 2017


This very successful workshop was supported by a research award from the Centre for Applied Social Sciences at Queen Margaret University, to Dr Margaret Smith, Dr A Schrag and Dr Fiona Kelly. The proposal involved a collaboration across two Schools at QMU and the Division of Nursing and Division of Media, Communication and Performing Arts. The work grew out of ongoing research at QMU, the Lydia Osteoporosis Project 1 and 2, which is led by a team of researchers in the Division of Nursing. MS and FK are members of the Centre for Person-centred Practice Research, and MS is also a member of the Centre for Applied Social Sciences, QMU.

 The Workshop Team for this event comprised:


Dr Margaret A C Smith (PI LOP 1&2) 

Dr Anthony Schrag

Dr Fiona Kelly

Miss Alice Finbow

Mrs Alison Bacigalupo


Thanks also to Miss Claire Pearson (RA LOP 1&2) for contributions to the planning phase for the event.
