Physiotherapy Research Priorities: Have your say on the future of physiotherapy
The survey can be completed at any time. The date given above indicates how long the survey will be available to complete.
Anyone with an injury, illness, condition or disability should have the chance to achieve the best possible outcome and quality of life.
The James Lind Alliance is helping the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) carry out a Priority Setting Partnership. This is a way of working with researchers and the public to decide the priorities for physiotherapy research.
They would like anyone with experience of physiotherapy in the UK to tell them what questions need answering. That way they can make sure research focusses on the most urgent needs of patients and promotes health and well being.
What you need to do
Think about your experiences and understanding of physiotherapy and how it is delivered - and then tell the CSP your thoughts.
They are looking for questions that, if researched, could make a real difference to people receiving physiotherapy. They can be about any type of physiotherapy service for any injury, illness, condition or disability, for people of any age.
You will be asked questions about four different aspects of physiotherapy:
- physiotherapy to help people recover
- physiotherapy to help people to manage their condition(s) themselves
- physiotherapy to help people improve their health and prevent disease and injury
- how physiotherapy services are accessed and delivered.
What will happen with your questions?
Your questions will be included in a list of research ideas. (Unless, of course, they’ve already been answered.)
Patients, carers and physiotherapists will then be asked to choose which ones are the most important.
What will happen with your information?
Your questions will be published anonymously on the CSP website. They may also be featured in reports and research papers.
Your name or your organisation’s name won’t be published and no one will be able to identify you: your personal details will remain confidential.
