The value of the CSP’s Quality Assurance and Enhancement Role


This position statement sets out the approach that the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) takes to its quality assurance and enhancement (QAE) role. As the UK’s professional, educational and trade union body for physiotherapy, the CSP seeks to hold, shape and develop the body of knowledge and skills that define the profession's contribution to services throughout patient care pathways and in various settings, as described in this document. This role is exercised within the national and international context of the profession's evolving education, practice and research base.

This position statement may be used with Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) to illustrate how the CSP provides support and information to guide programme development and delivery, and to support them in responding to changes in health and social care and education. It demonstrates to stakeholders how the CSP promotes the use and sharing of innovative and excellent practice, embedding opportunities to share in all QAE activity. It can also be used with other Allied Health Professions (AHPs), the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and government departments and bodies to demonstrate CSP’s QAE role in providing leadership and support in a time of substantial change in higher education and health and social care.

The position statement will be kept under review to ensure its currency and updated as necessary.
