Children’s Chapter provides new AHP framework

7 December 2010 - 2:10pm

Physiotherapists working with young people now have access to an educational framework resource aimed at ensuring AHPs are ‘getting it right for every child’.

‘The Children’s Chapter’ has been produced by the child health team at NHS Education in Scotland (NES) in collaboration with AHP stakeholders across NHS Scotland.

The new resource provides educational guidance to clinicians, managers and planners as well as helping AHPs identify their competencies and access the right educational opportunities.

‘Comparative approach’

CSP policy officer for Scotland, Kenryck Lloyd-Jones, said: ‘We very much welcome NHS Education in Scotland’s comparative approach to the role of AHPs in children and young people’s services. This framework will help to support and enhance their role.’

Sonya Lam, NES director of allied health professions, also welcomed publication of The Children’s Chapter.

‘It provides clear educational direction for AHPs and support workers, and also for service managers when planning development and identifying learning needs of their staff,’ she said.
