James Lind Alliance Physiotherapy Priority Setting Partnership

Our Top 10 research priorities were chosen at a workshop on 7 February 2018

Priority setting workshop

Thank you to everyone who took part in the workshop and to everyone who completed our surveys.

The top priority:

When health problems are developing, at what point is physiotherapy most/least effective for improving patient results compared to no physiotherapy? What factors affect this?

Take a look at the top ten physiotherapy research priorities

How were the priorities chosen?

The CSP worked with the James Lind Alliance in a Physiotherapy Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) to find out from patients, carers and clinicians what research is important to them.

They told us the questions they wanted to ask where research could make a real difference to people receiving physiotherapy. Their questions were about

  • Physiotherapy treatments
  • Self-management
  • Improving health and preventing disease and injury
  • How services are accessed and delivered

The project is funded by the CSP Charitable Trust.
