Evi works for Bridges as a Lived Experience Associate. Her professional background is business studies. Since 2015, when she was involved in a road traffic accident and suffered major trauma injuries, she has been focusing on sharing her patient experience through various university lectures for trauma and after trauma modules, speaking at national trauma conferences alongside leading health care professionals, bringing and sharing her patient experience through Bridges Self-Management training and as a lay member on the board for the National Institute for Clinical Excellence for Rehabilitation after Traumatic Injury. Evi manages to bring the patient perspective alive through her story telling and always knows when is the right time to tell a particular story when working with clinicians to emphasise the patient perspective without making the clinician feel like they have failed in their job.
As a team we share the same ethos and philosophy that drives our passion to create the best experience and environment for patients to live well. Bridges provide opportunities for both patients and professionals to work collaboratively to enhance self-management skills, knowledge and confidence.
