Frontline staff on the physio news affecting you.

  • 14 Sep 2015 - 3:59pm
    But before then there’s plenty more on the horizon for members.
     
    We know it’s important for you to keep abreast of what’s going on out there, within your membership organisation and within your profession. And we know you welcome help in promoting the value of physiotherapy to the public.
     
    Dip into this issue of Frontline to keep...

    From our interviews with the physios treating Rugby World Cup players or working at the Commonwealth Youth Games, through to our interview with musculoskeletal joint repositioning pioneer Brian Mulligan, you can rely on Frontline to keep you in the picture about your profession (see News pages and page 22).
     
    So many CSP members start out wanting to work in sports...

    I had the good fortune to attend my aunt’s 90th birthday party the other weekend.
     
    Before retiring she’d worked as a care assistant in a home for children with severe learning disabilities. She now lives in a home herself – situated in a rather pleasant retirement complex in Oxfordshire. Getting older has worked out reasonably well for her, all things considered...

    Just last week there were a couple of major healthcare awards ceremonies: Patient Safety and Clinical Leaders of 2015, both organised by Health Service Journal.
     
    It was disappointing not to see a physio listed as a clinical leader. But to win anything you have to enter. That takes time and effort (and often an entry fee).
     
    So why don’t...

    We’ve another packed issue of Frontline for you: pain, posture and promotion being the themes in our features (pages 24 onwards). But it was Andy Lord’s article on promoting physiotherapy that really caught my eye (page 32). 
     
    CSP members probably don’t like to think of themselves as a sales force. But as Andy, a CSP professional adviser and a physio, points...

    They made sure this year’s event, which raises awareness about the importance of good physical and mental health in the workplace, was a resounding success.
     
    In sessions held across the UK, more than 900 members showcased the importance of public health and occupational health and proved that physio staff can design stimulating activities that benefit everyone....

    Many of you will be looking forward to a summer holiday. This year, I’m taking an ‘austerity break’. Rather than jetting off to southern Europe, I’m walking along the Thames Path in stages, starting at the Thames Barrier in Greenwich last Christmas Eve. The next leg is Maidenhead to Pangbourne (not even half way yet). 
     
    Wish me luck with reaching the river’s...

    So, we have a new, majority government in Westminster. And the UK’s political landscape is looking very different from this time last year. What will it all mean to physio services and physiotherapy staff? And to your patients?
     
    The CSP will continue to campaign on your behalf with the four key messages used in the lead up to the election: fair pay; fewer falls;...

    The CSP played a significant role in the proceedings, as our Physio Findings column outlines. And, as the World Confederation of Physiotherapy’s outgoing president, Marilyn Moffat, said: ‘We all have a responsibility to make the world better for those we serve.’
     
    That’s true...

    About 150 CSP members gathered at the Curl sports centre in Aberdeen last month. It would be hard to think of a more appropriate fitting venue for an awareness-raising Physiotherapy Works event in Scotland. Not only did the sport of curling originate in Scotland, but the setting also gave delegates opportunities to watch groups of older competitors playing games on the ice during delegates’...
