The use of medicines with injection-therapy in physiotherapy services (5th edition)

The use of medicines in physiotherapy injection-therapy settings has been commonplace for many years.

With the introduction of prescribing rights for physiotherapists, the mechanisms by which physiotherapists can access medicines has increased. In addition, the increasing provision of physiotherapy services by independent providers of healthcare has required a greater understanding of medicines frameworks in non-NHS settings.

In recent years, the issue of ‘mixing’ of medicines became a matter of intense professional debate, resulting in clarification of the law and substantive guidance on the matter from a range of national organisations, including the introduction of this CSP Information Paper (PD003) which has been updated over the years to keep pace with changing clinical practice. This 5th edition aims to provide a single resource of general information for physiotherapists using injection therapy in any sector.
