Dr Rhiannon Joslin
Dr Rhiannon Joslin is a physiotherapist who is passionate about improving health services for children and young people experiencing musculoskeletal pain. As a clinical academic, she combines clinical practice as a specialist physiotherapist within a paediatric multidisciplinary chronic pain team in West Sussex, with research and education at the University of Southampton. Her PhD used creative approaches within a mixed-methods design to explore the outcomes of treatment that were the most important to young people, and their parents, when receiving treatment for persistent musculoskeletal pain. Her work focuses on empowering young people both clinically and within research, providing a platform to hear their under-represented viewpoint. She was part of the guideline development group for the World Health Organization guidelines on the management of chronic pain in children and continues to represent physiotherapy within this field.
