Katie Stant is the Study Coordinator for the SCOOP study (Screening of Older women for Prevention of Fractures). The study (funded by the MRC and ARC) aims to assess whether a community based screening programme for osteoporosis reduces the incidence of fractures in older women in a manner that is cost-effective, and acceptable to women and GPs. Further information can be obtained from the trial website http://www.scoopstudy.ac.uk/

In addition Katie is also the Trial Manager on OTCH (A cluster randomised controlled trial of an occupational therapy intervention for residents with stroke living in UK care-homes). Funded by the National Institute for Health Research the OTCH trial is looking at the effects of a targeted course of occupational therapy for people with stroke living in a care home. This multi-centre trial hopes to ascertain the effect of occupational therapy rehabilitation on the resident’s mobility and independence in self care activities of daily living. Further information can be obtained from the trial website http://www.haps.bham.ac.uk/primarycare/otch/
