Since February 2020, Meike van Scherpenseel is working as junior lecturer-researcher in the Research Group Innovation of Movement Care in the FRIEND project. In this project Meike is focusing on the implementation of fall prevention programs in community-dwelling older people.
After completing her bachelor's degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (HU) in 2016, she worked as a physical therapist for a year and a half in a primary care setting. In 2019 she graduated from the University Utrecht and completed her master’s degree in Clinical Health Sciences.
‘Implementation’ is the central theme in the FRIEND project. In research, education and health care settings, we notice increasing focus on this topic. With this project, Meike aims to fill the gap between research and practice, in order to optimize fall prevention in community-dwelling elderly.
