John Gladman’s research began with the DOMINO study (DOMiciliary therapy In NOttingham), a RCT in stroke patients, which formed the basis of his Nottingham DM (1991). He led TOTAL (the Trial of Occupational Therapy And Leisure), which was the first multi-centre stroke rehabilitation RCT in the UK. Later he led RCTs in intermediate care services. John Gladman was the Principal Investigator on a NIHR Programme Grant for Applied Research “Medical Crises in Older People” (2008-2013). See www.nottingham.ac.uk/mcop to see outputs from it. John has led the Older People Living with Frailty theme of the East Midlands AHSN (2014-2016), and the Interventions to Reduce Musculoskeletal Ageing theme of the Birmingham-Nottingham MRC-ARUK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research (2012-2014). He led the Caring for Older People and Stroke Survivors theme of CLAHRC East Midlands, and co-lead the Complex Intervention Packages research area in the Nottingham BRC’s Musculoskeletal Disease theme. He supports research grant giving for the Dunhill Medical Trust and the Abbeyfield Foundation. John founded and led the East Midlands Research into Ageing Network (EMRAN).
