- MA Coles responded to a news item titled CSP launches online resources to boost continuing professional development: As a still-registered physiotherapist of 47 years’ experience, I’m delighted to see this development. I have always followed these ways of promoting good practice and personal development and fortunately keep a record of reading material and courses attended together with reflective writing on my practice. This has now enabled me to attend Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge to pursue an MSc in public health. It is equipping me to continue to have a voice in delivery of patient care and policy.
- CFCampbell responded to a news item titled Encourage everyone to be more active – even if their weight is healthy, says NICE. Before we as a profession apply recommended exercise guidelines we have to, each individually, ask if we are in the status as a prime example to advise. Can we also advise in the capacity as relative experts in the field, ie are the advisers comfortable from being practically experienced in what is being directed. Have you tried and tested the exercise regime you are prescribing or is it something learned from a book; because we are almost tending to become an exercise coach.
