She has a long standing interest in clinical trials, medical statistics and, from a clinical perspective, rehabilitation of musculo-skeletal and chronic conditions. She works with clinicians from a variety of backgrounds to develop pragmatic clinical trial designs to capture the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a variety of health technologies. She is the Chief Investigator for a number of trials of rehabilitation interventions, and Head of the Centre for Rehabilitation Research in the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculo-skeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford. Prior to taking up the post of Co-Director of OCTRU, Professor Lamb was the Foundation Director of the Warwick Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Warwick. She continues to work collaboratively with the Warwick Unit.

Professor Lamb has a particular interest in older people, and has served as a member of the American Geriatric Society/ British Geriatric Society Fall Guideline Panel, and more recently, as a member of the NICE guideline panel of hip fracture management. She collaborates with a range of US and European Investigators interested in frailty, sarcopenia and disability in older people.

Future directions for evidence based falls prevention practice

Falls prevention practice is underpinned by a large body of research evidence, which at times provides a conflicting account of effective interventions and confusion about the best way forward. Drawing on data from the first of a new generation of large pragmatic clinical trials and the 2018 updates of the Cochrane Reviews of fall prevention interventions for older people living in the community, this talk will update the evidence picture, highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the existing research base and draw conclusions for research and practice.
