Hospital Research Group

University of Sheffield logo

Over the last few months we formed a client group to support research by the School of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery, at the University of Sheffield. The aim was to explore and understand how vision impairment (or low vision) can impact on inpatients during a hospital stay. It was very productive and we are delighted that through our group’s feedback and the facilitators’ implementation, the result is some very helpful information in the form of:

1. Tips for healthcare staff and how they can help a vision impaired patient when they are in hospital.
2. Tips for patients and family members for a hospital visit if someone has a vision impairment.
Well done to everyone in the team, and to our clients who gave their thoughts - it has resulted in something very powerful that will hopefully make a big difference.
This information is available for us to use and send out. If you would like a copy please get in touch
