Lisa Newington is a Specialist Physiotherapist in Hand Therapy, Clinical Research Fellow and PhD Student at the Arthritis Research UK – MRC Centre for Musculoskeletal Health and Work MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit.

Lisa has been involved with the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit since 2014 when she was awarded a Health Education England, Wessex Allied Health Professional Research Internship. Together with her supervisors, Prof Karen Walker-Bone (MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit), Prof Jo Adams (Faculty of Health Sciences) and Prof David Warwick (University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust), Lisa developed a programme of research to investigate return to work after carpal tunnel release.

In 2015 Lisa won an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship to complete this research. Lisa started her PhD in January 2016 and is currently exploring: the return to work advice provided to carpal tunnel release patients; when and how patients return to work after carpal tunnel release; and whether earlier return to work is associated with poorer outcomes. This information will be used to develop clinical guidance.
