Researchers to shine light on prescribing activities in England

The Department of Health (DH) has called for applications to carry out research into physiotherapists’ independent prescribing.

It has asked interested parties to submit applications to conduct research into health outcomes, costs, patient experience and patient safety of physiotherapists’ and podiatrists’ independent prescribing.

Studies are expected to begin next year.

Researchers have also been asked to identify innovative and effective practice among the prescribers.

A final report on the research findings should be published in 2015.
