Home Modification Process Protocol Event

Are you a UK based occupational therapist interested and involved in the home adaptation/modification process?

The Home Modification Process Protocol (HMPP) was developed by
our very own Rachel Russell as part of a research project investigating the role of occupational therapists in the design and construction of home adaptations/modifications. We have now gained additional funding for a small event for the purposes of discussing with practitioners a strategy for disseminating and developing the HMPP. This day long, focus group style, event will be taking place at the College of Occupational Therapists in London on the 30th March 2017 and we are looking for a range of practitioners who work in this field of practice to take part. However, if there is enough interest from practitioners in the Northwest then we are considering holding an event here at the University of Salford.

These two videos provide further information about the original research project and introduce the HMPP. If you are interested in taking part in this exciting event, or require further information, please e-mail


I am an Occupational Therapist and my main passion is the using the built environment to support people's occupational performance (basically ensuring people are able to do the things they want, need and have to do in their everyday lives without being hindered by the built environment). Having completed an MSc in Accessibility and Inclusive Design I was given an opportunity to complete a PhD, which I did in July 2016. Currently I am based in the School of Health Sciences at University of Salford. My research interest is in the process used by occupational therapists to modify home environments.
