Measurement and Evaluation

As a recognised rehab integration, Horticultural Therapy is part of the holistic range of interventions available at DMRC Stanford Hall for injured serving personnel.

Professor Zoe Morrison conducts annual service evaluations in conjunction with the Occupational Therapists who refer their patients to Horticultural Therapy and we collect anecdotal evidence from patients at the end of each admission as part of their treatment plan.

We are grateful to everyone who is helping to build the evidence base for Horticultural Therapy as a treatment intervention for injured serving personnel.
