New project supports members into the future

The CSP has developed new resources that aim to help members thrive in a time of change.

The Society’s Charting the Future project has produced three separate but interlinked resources for members. The first is a set of learning and development principles. The second is a code of professional values and behaviour. The third resource offers, for the first time, a framework of physiotherapy knowledge and skills. ‘We hope the resources will be particularly helpful to members within the current context of healthcare reform and economic change,’ said Sally Gosling, an assistant director in the CSP’s practice and development function. Between now and June 2011 the Society is piloting the code. ‘The code isn’t binding at the moment,’ Sally Gosling said. ‘We want members to try it out and provide feedback on how it relates to their day-to-day practice.’ The framework is due to go live as an online resource by the end of this year, but CSP Congress-goers will have the chance of a preview, and to attend a session on the new resources. ‘Congress will be a real opportunity for people to see what the framework looks like and how they’ll be able to use it,’ says implementation group member, Dr Karen Beeton, associate head of the School of Health and Emergency Professions at the University of Hertfordshire.
