Research priorities are spelled out in Physiotherapy journal

6 September 2012 - 9:20am

September’s  issue of Physiotherapy Journal highlights the results of last year’s CSP research priorities project.

The project looked at the society’s work on identifying the national research priorities for physiotherapy.

The paper outlines the methods used and groups and stakeholders involved in coming to a consensus on the project.

Key research areas

Priorities are grouped under key research areas, including musculoskeletal, neurology, cardiorespiratory and medical rehabilitation, and mental and physical health and wellbeing.

Gabrielle Rankin, CSP research adviser and one of the authors of the paper,  said: ‘The project highlights the areas of physiotherapy which need more evidence most urgently. It is vital that we now get research underway and I would encourage anyone who does research at any level to look at the findings.’

The priorities chosen under the project have been disseminated to universities and throughout CSP networks.

They are also being shared with research organisations and networks, other professional bodies, as well as charities and patient representative groups, in a bid to encourage more collaboration over research priorities in areas of shared interest.
