Online meeting with Ashan Wijekoon

Ashan graduated as a physiotherapist from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka in 2018. He is currently working as a Lecturer in Physiotherapy at the same university. Ashan is a Commonwealth PhD Scholar and is completing his PhD in Exercise and Physical Rehabilitation Following Amputation, with a special interest in community-based rehabilitation (CBR). His research project focuses on developing a physical rehabilitation intervention for community-reintegrated veterans following lower limb amputation in Sri Lanka. Through his project, he aims to address the absence of formal CBR services in Sri Lanka for the underlying population. He spent one and a half years at King’s College London studying standard community-based amputation rehabilitation practices in the UK and is planning to adapt these practices to the Sri Lankan context.

We welcome anyone to join to hear about Ashans work and some of the discussions after in this recording of the online webinar
